The Montgomery Chapter of The Links, Incorporated. has named an Alabama State University student as its Servant Leader Scholar, an honor that includes a $2,500 scholarship.
ASU junior and two-term Student Government Association treasurer, Jeremi Moore, was presented with The Link's Southern Area Servant Leader Scholarship in a formal ceremony on Aug. 16, with ASU President, Dr. Quinton T. Ross, Jr., in attendance.
"It is wonderful that both the Links and Alabama State University have a servant leader scholar like Jeremi Moore," said Ann Sippial, president of The Link's, Inc. Montgomery Chapter. "We believe this award is an exciting opportunity to introduce Jeremi to the community and award him our $2,500 scholarship that goes toward his education at ASU. Our chapter is also going to partner with him as he also participates in 20-hours of community service, which is part of the award."
She explained that the award is representative of the Montgomery Chapter's deep commitment to the success of students enrolled in Historically Black Colleges or Universities.
STUDENT THANKS ASU AND THE LINKS
Moore, who is a secondary education major, expressed his gratitude to ASU and to the Links.
"ASU has given me the opportunity to lead, to get involved in important areas that affect our students’ education and lives, and it has connected me with the resources that I need to be successful in a life serving others," Moore said. "I wish to thank the Links’ Montgomery Chapter for this award and my mother, LaShondra Moore, for inspiring me to be all that I can be in life. It is amazing to be able to know that I am being recognized by an organization that does and cares so much about service to others and promotes leadership in our community. This is one of my proudest moments."
WINNER’S PARTICIPATION IN LINK'S SERVANT LEADERSHIP ACADEMY
In addition to offsetting a portion of the cost of Moore's education during the 2021-22 academic year, the award will afford him the opportunity to participate in the Southern Area of The Links, Inc. Servant Leadership Academy. The academy will provide him with an engaging servant leadership curriculum aimed at further honing his skills in leadership, community service, transformational service and leveraging partnerships.
