100 Black Men Of Bradley County Thanks Community For Support

Tuesday, March 20, 2018

The 100 Black Men of Bradley County would like to thank each and every individual who lent a hand in making this year’s Annual Scholarship Banquet a success.  

The outstanding support confirms that the people of Bradley County are committed to helping provide the much needed mentoring and education opportunities to all of the children in our community.  

We especially want to thank our corporate sponsors for their generous and overwhelming support, as well as the support of our local school's educators and administrators.

The 100 Black Men Of Bradley County Inc, was officially charted in May of 1994 and in that time we have seen 59 of our scholarship recipients graduate from universities and colleges, and in that same time period have mentored and lent guidance to countless others.  

In the current 2017-18 academic year we have 17 collegiate students enrolled in our scholarship programs, as our mission to provide mentoring and educational opportunities for for African Americans continues, and has broadened in scope to include all at risk youth in Bradley County. 

Again, thank you for supporting The 100 Black Men and our Annual Scholarship Banquet. Together, we make a positive impact in lives of those young men and women on whom our future depends. 

With sincere gratitude and appreciation, 

Jonathan Porter, 
President of 100 Black Men of Bradley County Inc.
