Texas City’s Greater Macedonia Baptist Church will present its fifth annual “Talent Extravaganza” scholarship benefit at 5 p.m. today at 6414 FM 1765.
“Twice a year, we give each recipient a special scholarship and then, every month after, we give them a grant,” said coordinator Annie Brooks. “Many of the recipients have become successful professionals and also a part of this scholarship ministry after graduation. They have shown great appreciation for this fund. We also give children school supplies as well as other needs. In the future, we hope to eventually provide scholarships to nonmembers. One of our recipients is a local public schoolteacher who is also a youth leader in our church with the praise dance team and is able to minister to both our church and community. Other professionals work at UTMB and help people in both circles.”
