Hello community, in a world of constant negativity being highlighted it is very important to highlight the kids who are doing positive things. Positive Vibes and Partners did just that by acknowledging three young scholar athletes this past Friday at the Millville Waterfront. This was the 5th annual year of the scholarship program. The program is in memory of Coach JT Burks's late grandmother Josephine Burks who would always tell her grandchildren "Keep God first, focus in school and appreciate your education and learn all you can it will take you very far. I had to drop out early to work." Quote from Josephine

We are glad that each year fellow community members pull together and donate a variety of gifts to make the day extra special for the young scholars. Not only do they receive gifts but they have their football registration paid for in full! The special thing about this year is that a scholarship was given to players from Millville, Bridgeton and Vineland! This is so great because it shows it is all about solidarity, unity and diversity

"Gifts Donated To The Scholars"

"We at Positive Vibes would like to thank the families of the three young men for allowing them to be a part of our 5th Annual #Team Josephine Scholarship “The College Signing Day Experience” and for the young men for being an inspiration and representing excellence in the classroom!
