The McLymore Foundation was founded in 2016 and aims to encourage residents of Newburgh to rise above the expectations placed upon them. Through my foundation, I have helped the community by conducting clothing, food drives, art events, vision board workshops, tutoring sessions, community health fairs, family dances and more. For 2019, I am getting workshops, career fairs and english translation courses started.
I also started a scholarship fund in 2018 for seniors in the Newburgh Free Academy School District who plan to continue their education (college, university or trade school). Last year, the McLymore Foundation was able to give out $300 to a scholar who wanted to apply to the Ivy League colleges.
Through the Awesome Foundation, we will be able to give out greater financial assistance to those who want to apply for a higher degree after High School.
