Bernard L. Macon Jr. - Co-Founder (Chief Executive Officer, President)
Growing up in the inner city I often faced the same struggles of other young males, but going to college was always a goal of mine. As a graduate of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, IL., I was faced with many challenges including transportation, academics and most important financial burden. I often wondered how I was going to pay for additional books and tuition.
Sitting at home I made a vow, if I was ever in a situation where I can provide college students with financial assistance I was going to do it. From that point forward the concept of BLM² Scholarship Foundation was born. I truly believe in Deuteronomy 16:17 “Every man shall give as he is able, according to the Lord your God which He has given you“. This concept speaks volumes as to how we are called to help and support our fellow brother/sister as God gives and provides for us.
I invite you to explore our mission and catch hold of our impact, as we enhance the lives of future leaders and embrace our community through giving and caring.
