36th Annual Scholarship Banquet
The Annual Rockford Association for Minority Management (RAMM) Scholarship Banquet is Rockford's premier prestigious minority event, bringing together all of Rockford and surrounding areas to honor African American and minority high school seniors. These young scholars have displayed exceptional character through their service to the Rockford community, academic achievements and leadership among their peers. Bright minds, with bright futures; we celebrate, encourage and support their aspirations in education. We are excited to see them grow into their professions and succeed in life.
Presented by The Rockford Association for Minority Management (RAMM). We are also joined by The City of Rockford Fire Department, presenting one scholarship award to a scholar who has aspirations in pursuing a profession in the fire fighting or fire science field. Here are some photos from this year's event.
Thanks to all those who attended and supported our minority community. We hope to see you again in February 2018!
