The Julius and Lenora Carter Scholarship and Youth Foundation was established September 2010 after the sudden passing, April 10, 2010, of Lenora Carter, Publisher and CEO of Forward Times Publishing Company, Inc.
Julius and Lenora Carter were the founders and publishers of Forward Times Publishing Company. For years, the Carters privately assisted students who aspired to excel in the area of journalism. The foundation will now publicly benefit low-and/or medium - income graduating seniors and college students of public or private schools within the Greater Houston Metropolitan area seeking to enter an institution of higher learning in pursuit of a degree in Journalism, Photography, Printing, Broadcasting or Digital Communications.
The Foundation also interns students through Forward Times Publishing Company, Inc. to prepare them with practical experience in their prospective fields of study. The Foundation has partnered with local High Schools and Universities and selected our first (10) students that received $1,000 scholarships, presented March 12, 2011.
