Local student-athlete Zaniyah Williams was the recipient of one of five scholarships awarded through the second annual Empowering Greatness Scholarship program.
Williams, a senior from Vanguard High School, maintains a 4.46 GPA and is a dedicated member of the National Honor Society, Vanguard Track and Field Varsity Team, and Vanguard Student Government Association.
Through a dollar-for-dollar match with the Florida Prepaid College Foundation, the Empowering Greatness Scholarship Program will prepay tuition, registration fees, and local fees for 60 lower-division semester credit hours at any of Florida’s public colleges or universities per student.
A diverse panel of six judges who are committed to making a difference in their communities worked with Farah & Farah to review applicants and select the awardees. The selections were based on financial factors, student academic interest, and a scholarship essay prompting how an educational pursuit may help one overcome challenges and positively impact change in a community.
