Trehon Coleman received a Community Foundation scholarship for several years supporting his education at Tennessee State University, a public university and HBCU in Nashville. He graduated in 2010 from the College of Engineering, Technology and Computer Science and went to work for Raytheon Missile Company in Arizona, after having had an internship there. He is still with Raytheon today and serves as the youth pastor of his church. He comes back to Nashville each year to his elementary school for a program he started to encourage students to aspire to going to college.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors dedicated to investing in students’ futures, we administer more than 100 scholarship funds through an open application process. Some scholarships help students from a particular school or area; others provide financial assistance to those pursuing a specific field of study; still others assist students most in need.
All gifts raised from #RNLGives will support a scholarship fund for low-income, high-achieving students who attend Metro Nashville Public Schools.
