When asked about Miss Rankin, Stephen-Michael lead of the SZN Foundation stated:
“Alelia brought an amazing energy to her final round interview; as well as to her application. Her high school, Oxon Hill accounted for half of the applications for our PG County scholarship. From the first round to the final round, it was a tough decision on who to select. But Aleila’s resume, ambition, and personality was evident. Her application answers about Mental Health in the Black Community; as well as her goal to teach her community about local politics was detailed and thought-provoking.
As a native of PG County, Maryland; I am very proud of her accomplishments!”
We wish Aleila all the best in her next chapter at Norfolk State!
"Aleila was kind, smart, and full of big goals!" - Shaylon Arnold, Season Foundation Executive Assistant
The Season Foundation wants to thank the students from Prince George’s County for applying for the scholarship! We do not take this for granted and we are grateful to give back to such a diverse county.
About Norfolk State: Norfolk State College was founded on September 18th, 1935. The College, brought to life in the midst of the Great Depression, provided a setting in which the youth of the region could give expression to their hopes and aspirations. At its founding, it was named the Norfolk Unit of Virginia Union University. In 1942, the College became the independent Norfolk Polytechnic College, and two years later an Act of the Virginia Legislature mandated that it become a part of Virginia State College. The College was able to pursue an expanded mission with even greater emphasis in 1956 when another Act of the Legislature enabled the institution to offer its first Bachelor's degree. The College was separated from Virginia State College and became fully independent in 1969. Subsequent legislative acts designated the institution as a university and authorized the granting of graduate degrees. In 1979, university status was attained.
Norfolk State University, a comprehensive urban public institution, is committed to transforming students’ lives through exemplary teaching, research and service. Offering a supportive academic and culturally diverse environment for all, the University empowers its students to turn their aspirations into reality and achieve their full potential as well-rounded and resourceful citizens and leaders for the 21st century.
