Amscot gives scholarship grant to Mary McLeod Bethune Legacy Preservation Institute


Tampa, FL – (September 4, 2014) – Amscot Financial is pleased to contribute a $5,000 grant for student scholarships to the Mary McLeod Bethune Legacy Preservation Institute.

The scholarships will be used to assist with housing and books for students with financial hardships who attend Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Florida.

“A university experience is a life-enriching experience that unfortunately is not always available to every deserving student. We are delighted that Amscot is helping to make this experience a reality for those students who need it most,” said Dr. Evelyn Bethune, CEO of the Mary McLeod Bethune Legacy Preservation Institute , Inc.

The mission of the Mary Bethune Legacy Preservation Institute is “Educate to Serve.” It’s the institute’s goal to inspire people to lead, to learn throughout their lives, and to leave something greater than what they found as a resource. Each generation must add value for the next.
