A scholarship fund has recently been established in loving memory of Shomari Asim Foster (September 11, 1973 – June 3, 2012). Born in Orange, New Jersy, Shomari was the only son born to Alberta T. and Frager Foster, Jr.. Shomari understood that the best way to predict his future, was to create it; knowing with all his being that when there is hope, vision, hard work and tenacity in the present there is power in the future. He understood that limiting his own potential was his greatest adversary. He also knew that every generation has two obligations: first, to avail themselves of the opportunities provided by the generation that preceded them; and second, to provide greater opportunities to the generation that follows. Shomari took advantage of the opportunities that were availed to him.
He held a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Tuskegee University (Tuskegee, AL) and a Masters of Business Administration from East Tennessee State University (Johnson City, TN). In addition, Shomari had just completed his first year of law school at Ohio Northern University’s Pettit College of Law (Ada, Ohio).

Please go to the Donation window, and select program donation indicator and Shomari’s name will appear. The application will appear and you should complete the requested donation information.
