Reginald Combs Memorial Scholarship

The family of the late Reginald Combs has announced a Memorial Scholarship in his honor that will be administered through the Dream 4 It Foundation. Mr. Combs was a special man. A spiritual man who put God and Family above all else. The value of a good education was high on his list of priorities. Taken out of school to work at the age of 13, he didn’t have the opportunity that so many of us have. Yet he remained determined to give his family the opportunity that he was not afforded. He worked five different jobs to send his three children to private schools and to college. Such was his commitment to family and the value of a good education. To carry on his legacy, a scholarship is being established as part of the Dream 4 It Foundation. Each year in August, deserving students are provided scholarships through the Foundation. To date over $125,000.00 in scholarships have been granted by the Foundation. You can help support the Foundation and continue Mr. Combs’ legacy. Individuals can become a part of the Dream Circle with a gift of $100.00. Understand any donation, regardless of the amount, can do what Mr. Combs always sought to do… ignite a light of hope and possibility. Please consider a legacy donation and keep the spirit of Mr. Combs, Reggie, Uncle Reginald, Granddad…Dad alive.
