Andrea Webster and Latosha Wilkes would like to thank the Black Alumni Society for awarding them scholarships for the 2011-2012 school year. Webster received the BAS Endowed Scholarship and Wilkes received the BAS Challenge Scholarship.   Dear Black Alumni Society members, I would like to thank all of the Black Alumni Society members for the generous Black Alumni Society Endowed Scholarship of $2,600 awarded annually for four years. This scholarship has already lifted a huge financial burden off of my shoulders. Because of this scholarship, I am motivated to work even harder to keep my grades up, in hopes of showing you all my dearest appreciation.
