Humble Area Pastor Pay Off The Balance For Graduating Seniors Caps And Gowns
Pastor, Philanthropist and Entrepreneur Joshua T. Scott of the Humble Praise Center paid the fees of graduating seniors at Wheatley High School to receive their caps and gowns alongside fellow Morehouse grad Jessie Johnson. Scott grew up in the rough streets of North East Houston and has dedicated his life to assisting in alleviating the struggles of many and bringing a smile to their day. His goal was to make sure students who might've contemplated the idea of skipping graduation commencement exercises due to finances could enjoy in celebration of their milestone without worrying about the cost of caps and gowns. According to US News & World Report, 70% of students are economically disadvantaged at Wheatley High School.
“A life committed only to helping one’s self is a life that is underutilized.”
- Pastor Joshua T. Scott
