Gift of college
Organized by: Mark Saxton
Hello, my name is Mark Saxton II, I don't come from much an was never given a chance to shine between, troublesome sisters, death in the family, and divorce in my teens. With my own two hands and dreaming of a future I can be proud of, I worked, took care of my father who has been unable to work for several years, and went to a community college. After many set backs I was able to graduate (Spring 2016) from Rockingham Community College with a Associates in Applied Science (Electronic Engineering). This allowed me to find my passion in engineering, its not just something I like to do, its what i love! I dream of creating, an one day wish to change the world with my creations!! Iv been accepted into NC A&T University (fall 2017) for Physics Engineering, I have managed to raise $9,500 in grants, scholarships, etc an I still need at least $8,000 to pay for tuition, books, along with room and board for my 1st year. My goal is $18,500 an I have raised $9,500 on my own, I have just short of 3 months before classes start and hope to find a way to bridge the gap. If you read this thank you for taking the time to at least listen to my brief story, any contributions will be going to a bright future. Remember the name Mark Saxton.... You will see it again i promise you that!!
