Randall’s Place is a scholarship organization dedicated to granting assistance to college-bound scholars. It was founded in 2007 by one of our members, Lorna Wilson, in honor of her father, Walter E. Knight Sr.
After realizing that many students opted out of continuing their education for fear of ridicule at not having basic supplies. From 2002 until his death in August 2007, Mr. Knight partnered with senior counselors from North Lawndale College Preparatory to give items typically provided by parents, or received as gifts, everything from computers to shower shoes, and everything in-between. Mr. Knight believed that by supplying these one-time start up items, students would feel a sense of belonging. That sense of belonging, coupled with on-going encouragement resulted in college “staying power.” In 2009, the scholarship organization expanded to include students outside the Lawndale area. To date with the support of friends, Randall’s Place has been blessed to award 22 scholarships.
I have seen the joy and sense of relief that these college-bound students and their parents have felt because the awards presentation has been held in our Great Hall the last two years. Morgan Park UMC scholars have also been recipients. This year, Randall’s Place will extend two scholarships. Help send these scholars to college. Anything you can give would be a big help, but if you can afford $50, $100, or more, that would go a long way toward assuring that these students and their parents are able to breathe a small sigh of relief as they begin their college career.
Checks may be made payable to Morgan Park United Methodist Church. All funds will go directly to Randall’s Place. Your donations are tax deductible and will be credited to Morgan Park UMC’s local mission giving. All who donate are also invited to a future scholarship presentation to see your money at work.
