This event will occur August 12th, 2018 at the Columbus Convention and Trade Center and is the sole fundraiser for the M. L. P. Scholarship. Donations support the scholarship. This is a need-based scholarship that supports students who have a desire to attend New Bethel Adventist Christian Academy, but lack the financial ability to do so without financial assistance. Margaret L. Parker is an educator who loves children and works tirelessly to ensure children obtain the education they desire. We invite you to help make this a reality for many of the children in this community by making a donation. We have seen tremendous growth in the students that attend New Bethel Adventist Christian Academy academically, socially, physically, spiritually, behaviorally, and mentally as we focus on the development of the whole child.
