When Rev. Cheryl T. Moultry, M.A. (of Moultry Communications) relocated back to the city of Nashville she knew that somehow she wanted to use her time and invaluable talents to help the community at large and the families therein. She is a dynamic author, pastor, entrepreneur, founder/CEO of both the ‘LOGOS Speaks Ministry’ and the ‘It’s About a Girl Ministries’—and much more. February 28 is going to be a day to remember and the launch of an invaluable community program: the ’Make my Dream Come True’ Scholarship Fund Banquet, hosted by the St. Luke A.M.E. Church pastor, Rev. Eddie L. Sneed.

This event and theme is on point and is expected to live on throughout the year. Rev. Moultry and the Hostess Ministry have researched and created a select educational scholarship, essay oriented program to enhance and uplift dreams—showing they do come true. The event is intended to bring light to the community of our youth desiring to attend college; to make their dreams a reality; and also to honor a person who has given back to the community by being an invested ‘Dream Maker.’

The program will take place at the West Nashville Branch Police Precinct, located at 5500 Charlotte Pike. ‘Radio angel’ and cherished media personality, Connie Denell, will be awarded a special award titled the ‘Dream Maker Award.’ Their special guest speaker is Rev. Howard Jones, of Fairfield Baptist Church of Goodlettsville, Tenn.

Students who have submitted essays have the opportunity to earn the ‘Make a Dream Award’ and mentoring time. Moultry and her organizers really cannot express the need for education, mentoring and society getting back to that ‘it takes a village’ mindset when it comes to our children and where they are headed in life as a whole. It’s no secret that if solutions are not put into place, the awful trend of ‘going to jail as opposed to going to school and on to college’ is going to be the norm.

Various community, ministry and youth oriented leaders and groups have been invited to support this invaluable endeavor. The program is open to the general public and the dress code is respectively casual. However, there are to be no sagging pants or provocative attire—out of respect to the church and the overall theme of the program. Although this is a Black History Month Program, the concept and life applications will carry on and are geared to be a distinctive voice in Nashville and the community at large. For the youth (and their families), this program should be a remarkable way to enable them to handle whatever life may bring their way. So mark your calendars and save the date. February 28 promises to be an amazing and invaluable day. Sponsorship opportunities, volunteers and supporters are needed and are much appreciated.
