To encourage youth to put God first in their lives, to carry Him to the classrooms and seek Him in all their endeavors.
To encourage creative development to all youth in pursuit of academic excellence and a productive future through spiritual guidance.
The Marshall Brent Dixon Academic Excellence Scholarship will endeavor to meet the needs of our youth in various areas of their academic careers through supplemental funding which will assist in developing:
Monica Dixon Perry, Chair
Billie Redmond, Co-Chair
Clara Patricia Guess
High School Graduate
Cumulative Grade Point Average
Active Pleasant Grove Church Disciple
Active Member In At Least One Ministry
This scholarship was started in 2007 thanks to the initial contributions from the Redmond-Harris and Dixon-Perry families but it is truly because of the continued financial support of the Pleasant Grove Church disciples, families, and friends that we've been able to sustain this scholarship.
In almost a decade, we have been able to award nearly $40,000.00 in scholarship money. I am so proud that we are able to honor my uncle's memory through the scholarship and know that he is truly proud of the young at Pleasant Grove Church who strive to do better and want to do better and acknowledge God as their foundation.
