The Cheltenham Area Branch of the NAACP winners of the 2016 NAACP Essay Competition held in April at the four individual high schools. The students were Briana Morales from Cheltenham, Kennedy Jackmon Jenkintown, Ayreeona Wright Plymouth – Whitemars, and Zaria Clifton from Springfield High School.
Briana Morales, Cheltenham High School Sponsored by The Most Excellent Grand Chapter, Holy Royal Arch Masons. A senior at Cheltenham High School. Throughout high school I have remained a member of the Black Scholars Program for all four years. With the help of my numerous extracurricular activities I was able to create close friendships and relationships with my peers and teachers. One of my teacher relationships has influenced me to pursue my major in nursing at West Chester University. My life goal has always been to give back to my community, and what better way to do that, than by working in the medical field and assisting sickly people while researching cures for deadly diseases. I look forward to starting my college career at West Chester University.
Kennedy Jackmon, Jenkintown High School, Sponsored by The Harvey L. Crudup Memorial Scholarship Fund. A senior at Jenkintown High School. I went to Cheltenham High School for most of my high school career until 11th grade, and then I transferred to Catasauqua High School for 6 months, and then came to live in Jenkintown. I am a part of the World Language Honor Society, National Young Leaders Society, and National Honor Society. When I was in Cheltenham, I was a part of the Black Scholars Program and Black Student Union, which were an honor to be in as well. In the fall, I am excited to attend Drexel University where I will major in Political Science. My ultimate goal is to become a Specialized Agent in the FBI, a dream I have had since I was a little girl.
Zaria Clifton, Springfield High School, Sponsored by Frederica D. Hale and
Monique Hale Bagby in memory of their father, Frederick Hale. I am 19 years old and was born in North Carolina, although during my youth I moved around a lot. I have lived in Virginia, New Jersey, Delaware, and of course, Pennsylvania. I presently live in Springfield Township and am attending Springfield High School. I am the current President of the Voices of Excellence Group--a minority group whose foundation is built on striving to enhance the already existing leadership skills in each individual. I have been a part of this group for nearly 5 years, and am also a member of many other clubs, including Youth and Government, and Human Right Alliance. My hobbies are: enjoying poetry, music, and just experiencing life with good company. My plans after High School are to tackle higher education while excelling to the top of my classes. I believe that to be the best, you have to become a champion in everything you do.
Ayreeona Wright, Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School, Sponsored by Frederica D. Hale and Monique Hale, Bagby in memory of their mother, Victoria Hale. I am 17 years old and was born and raised in Philadelphia. I live with my mother who is a single mother of three. I currently attend Plymouth Whitemarsh High School as a senior. I started in my 12th grade year, which was surprisingly difficult for me, because I came in not knowing anyone. I was unable to participate in any extracurricular activities because I worked after school to help my mom out at home. After graduating this year, I will attend Shippensburg University in the fall, which is located in Shippensburg, PA. I am very confident that my experiences through high school will help me during my next four years in college. Majoring in premedicine I plan on becoming a surgical technician after college. In addition to the monetary awards, students received Certificates of Congratulations from their respective state senators, Daylin Leach, and Art Haywood. Additionally, the NAACP saluted a number of individuals for their generous and devoted service to the community and unwavering support of the tenets promulgated by the NAACP.
