    SPBS Announces 2016 University Scholarship Programs

    SPBS continues its tradition of “giving back” by officially announcing its 2016 University Scholarship program. Ever since its inception, SPBS has a long tradition of reaching and supporting eligible candidates as they pursue their college education. Our goal is unchanged – to support our eligible CEMSS students at all stages from incoming freshmen to college bound students. In this release we focus on our University programs. Here, we present our proud tradition and most importantly, we introduce a new scholarship – the Ridley Guishard Scholarship.

     We endeavor to provide critical support for students in college and build a “family” of new leaders and future servants for the CEMSS community. We celebrate our 1st winner – Mrs. Sharine Hodge. Sharine (2013 Undergraduate Winner) graduated from Cameron College in 2014.
