Alisia Chambers EDGE Scholarship Recipient

“I am grateful for this reward. Just when I was getting discouraged about school, God opened up a new door. It’s definitely been hard trying to manage school, work and two kids, so I am very thankful and appreciative. Thank you so much.”

“For me, EDGE isn’t just about giving. It’s about contributing to OUR family as well as our surrounding community. It’s about being that helping hand when our community calls and being able to step in and provide assistance. That’s why I have continuously been a contributing and supporting member of EDGE over the past 13 years.”
