Did you know that over the last three years our NSBE Jr. seniors have earned approximately $1.2 Million in scholarships? Over that same time span, our students have a median GPA of 3.30? Did you know that our chapter has been fortunate enough to attend National Convention each year since we were chartered? Our students have attended conventions in Las Vegas, Toronto, and St. Louis. They have been exposed to experiences that over 99% of their peers at North will never experience. Each year it costs roughly $25,000 to support this chapter. The majority of that cost is associated with attending convention. Each year Mr. Williams asks corporations and grant-giving entities to support his efforts in exposing his students to the experience of National Convention. Roughly 12,000 professional engineers, researchers, collegians, and pre-college students amass together in one city for five days. Students attend workshops, listen to speakers, endure engineering competitions, attend college and job fairs, and socialize with their African-American peers. It is an awesome experience.
This is made possible through the generosity of others - like you!
Although students are responsible for a portion of the costs, I have historically raised over 90% of the funds needed. But I cannot do it alone. We need YOUR help!
Please consider supporting us with a donation of $25, $50, $75 or $100 towards our efforts.
Your tax-deductible donation will make our next convention a “first-time” reality for many of our NSBE Jr. students.
If you consider supporting us, make your check payable to: Omaha North High.
In the memo section, put: NSBE Jr.
We also request that you send a letter stating that all donated funds can be used to offset costs for both students and chaperones. Our students are grateful and thank you for your contribution and support of their efforts to become the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians.
Make sure to send your check courtesy of Anthony Williams and thank you for your generosity.
