Why we need this Scholarship Fund?

Earline's Passion
Earline Parmon has always had a passion for ensuring that every child has access to higher education. So much so, that in 1982 she founded the Lift Academy, where students who were considered to be at risk were given a second chance to accel. In 1990 Parmon was elected to the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners, where she would serve for 12 years. Then in 2001 she was elected to serve as a NC State Representative for District 72. A dedicated public servant who in 2012 became the first black state senator to represent Forsyth County died on Tuesday, March 15, 2016 due to complications from a brief illness. Parmon, who was 72, was surrounded by family and friends at the time of her death.
