About the Event
Blue Crescent Charities, Inc., in partnership with the Nu Beta Sigma chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. are inviting young men and women that exemplify high qualities of scholarship and community service to apply for the Alfred Washington Sr. Scholarship.
This scholarship is in honor of Alfred Washington, Sr. who on April 1, 1986, became the first African-American County Court Judge in Duval County. During his twelve years on the bench he served the needs of the county with distinction by “simply respecting the dignity of his fellow man”, and while he unfortunately passed away at only 57, his impact is still felt in Duval's judicial and general communities. Scholarship is one of the highest ideals of our respective organizations, and as such it is imperative that we promote this ideal among our high school youth.
