My name is Tahvis Magruder and in the year of 2017, I was awarded the Mount Morris Park Community Improvement Association Annual Scholarship for all 4 years of my pursuit of a Bachelors in Science, majoring in Biology at Morehouse College. I am currently wearing multiple hats when it comes to serving my community even after completing my studies. I am a Tae Kwon Do instructor at the Harlem Children Zone, a newly certified Medical Assistant serving in local neighborhood City MD locations, and a mentor to a student at Bronx High School for Law and Community Service who has recently committed to continuing his education after high school. Attending a college that is miles away from home, comes with several worries and expenses but thanks to the MMPCIA scholarship, $1000 was not one of them. The MMPCIA scholarship granted me the privilege to center my priorities on completing my collegiate studies with high marks and in a timely manner, and for that contribution I am deeply appreciative.
