First Recipient of Ernestine Moore Scholarship Award Named
Congratulations to Kenneth Williams, the first recipient of Ennis Center’s Ernestine Moore Scholarship Award. Kenneth began studies at Wayne State this fall and aspires to be an English teacher. Having survived a turbulent childhood including homelessness and the death of his mother, Kenneth is determined to do better for himself but has also found the joy in learning and new experiences. He writes poetry, plays chess, loves all kinds of music and is hoping to get his hands on some instruments soon. We’re very proud of you Kenneth, and are confident you can achieve all of your goals!
The Ernestine Moore Scholarship Award helps youth formerly in foster care with Ennis Center in their pursuit of continuing education. Award funds are generated from private donations in honor and in memory of Ernestine Moore who contributed tremendously to improvements in the child welfare system during her lifetime. As a social worker, attorney, and associate professor, Ernestine Moore was a tireless advocate for children in both her professional and personal life.
