My Long Lost Student
20 years ago, the 1st scholarship I ever gave out went to a young lady named Angela Brown. Unfortunately I never had the opportunity to meet her in person, and it has always bothered me. Every year, when we’re selecting new students, I would always think about Angela , and wondered how she was. Through the years we have helped over 160 awesome students go to college. I have met every one of them, except Angela. A former Malone Scholar, Cierra Kelly, is now the College Now advisor at MLK high school. She invited me to visit her school and talk with some of the students. I went there on 2/4/15 and Cierra introduced me to the librarian, Angela Reagins. You guessed it. Angela Brown, my very 1st scholarship recipient, is now librarian Angela Reagins. I can’t believe we finally met after 20 years. It was an incredible day for me.
