While the coronavirus pandemic has forced us apart physically, we invite you to join us in spirit for our unique and Eighth Annual A. Jean Battie “Stay at Home” Scholarship Fundraiser Luncheon. The luncheon will be streamed live on February 27, 2021, at 11:30 AM from Light of the World International church's sanctuary. The same great programming that highlights the winners of our annual Black History essay write-off and the exceptional young talents that have become the hallmark of our luncheons will again be on full display.


Please consider a donation to help us in our continued efforts to aid minority students in their quests for higher education.



To view live, please go to:

Thank you in advance for your generous donation and we'll look forward to seeing you live and in-person for our Ninth Annual in February 2022.

Submittals for the A. Jean Battie Essay Scholarship Awards are now being accepted, and they will be accepted through 2/13/2021. In light of the current pandemic, we will hold a virtual essay contest this year on 2/27/2021.  For essay prompts and instructions, click here.
