Gospel Singer Jonathan McReynolds Ready to Give Away $10K in College Scholarships.
Gospel singer Jonathan McReynolds says he’s ready to give away $10,000 in college scholarships.
McReynolds, the gospel music singer-songwriter is readying two $5,000 scholarships for those in need through his Elihu Nation nonprofit organization. He made the announcement on social media
Thursday, letting students know they can submit their applications starting on July 1.
“The only way this doesn’t work is if nobody wants $5000 #Geeked Follow @elihunation. More info is coming,” he wrote.
McReynolds started the Elihu Nation nonprofit in 2013 after being inspired by his graduate studies at the Moody Bible Institute where he earned a master of arts degree in applied biblical studies two years ago. After seeing what he believed to be a lack of encouragement for people in the African-American community to develop their talents in college, McReynolds went to his own undergraduate alma mater, Columbia College in Chicago, Illinois, where he became an adjunct instructor.
