HBCU Scholarship Presented to Clark Atlanta Student

HBCU Scholarship Recipient

In September, Delta Community and Atlanta radio station Majic 107.5/97.5 awarded the third $2,500 HBCU Scholarship of 2019 to Micah Boyd of Jonesboro, Georgia.

Despite his family dealing with great financial struggle through much of his upbringing, Micah focused on his education and, after years of hard work, graduated high school with honors. He is now a freshman at Clark Atlanta University, majoring in Art with concentrations in Graphic Design and Design Architecture. Micah has been an artist since he was 10 years old, and eventually he hopes to give back to others through art therapy. He is also an enthusiastic volunteer, and just some of his community service includes distributing food to the homeless, helping the elderly maintain their lawns and being a mentor and tutor to his peers.

Throughout 2019, we will award a total of $10,000 in scholarships to students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the state of Georgia. The HBCU Scholarship is part of Delta Community’s annual Scholarship Program. Visit our website to learn more about all of the scholarships that we offer.

  • What is Good Debt vs. Bad Debt?: Loans are a type of debt, where you must pay back the money borrowed (the principal) along with an additional percentage of the principal, the loan’s interest. The interest is the profit the lender makes on the loan they’ve extended. But all debt is not created equal. Did you know there is both “good debt” and “bad debt”?
