John Mack Endowed Scholarship Fund

The John Mack Endowed Scholarship was established through a lead gift initiated by Mrs. Janice Bryant Howroyd, President and CEO of Act One Personnel Services. The goal is to create a $250,000 scholarship endowment to honor, Mr. Mack, a man of distinction who has dedicated his life to serving so many others. Throughout his distinguished career, including the past 30 years with the Los Angeles Urban League, Mr. Mack has stood for excellence.

Chancellor James C. Renick of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University states, "This scholarship honors a man of distinction, dignity and leadership. John Mack epitomizes the excellence embodied in 'Aggie Pride'."

Mr. Mack graduated from high school in Flint, Michigan and decided to attend North Carolina A&T State University. Through his work with the Urban League and community, he has received numerous awards and recognition over the duration of his career. The creation of a scholarship endowment in his name honors his alma mater by allowing other youth from Los Angeles and his home state Michigan to have some of the same opportunities based upon a great education.

You are invited to join in honoring Mr. Mack. One goal is to seek ten (10) companies who are willing to provide $5,000 a year, for five years, to culminate in a $250,000 gift to the endowment. Others may wish to contribute more and all will be accepted. Individuals are also welcomed to contribute towards the scholarship endowment, as every dollar will make a difference in the life of some young person.
