The Julius and Lenora Carter Scholarship and Youth Foundation
The Julius and Lenora Carter Scholarship and Youth Foundation was established by the family of Julius and Lenora Carter. Julius and Lenora Carter were the founders and publishers of Forward Times Publishing Company. The Carter's always 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 high schools within the Greater Houston Metropolitan area seeking to enter an institution of higher learning in pursuit of a degree in journalism, photography and digital communications.
The foundation will also intern the students through Forward Times Publishing Company to prepare them in their prospective fields of study. The foundation has partnered with local Universities to select (10) students for $1,000 scholarships in the area of Journalism and Digital Communications, which will be presented March 12, 2011. The Black-Tie Scholarship Gala’s purpose is to raise funds to train High School and College students through a practical learning experience in the field of Journalism, Printing, Broadcasting and Digital Communications.
