"When hope is given, faith is restored. Throughout my time at Spelman College, there were many times I would wonder where the funding for my next semester would come from. Sometimes I would doubt myself and believe that I didn't belong in college because unlike my colleagues, I couldn't afford the cost of tuition. Until one day, The Joyce & Thomas Moorehead Foundation gave me hope. I was awarded a scholarship that aided my educational expenses. This allowed me to focus more in the classroom and less on job applications while being a full-time student. Yet most of all, the Foundation gave me a support system. The Mooreheads have continuously encouraged me to succeed in my educational endeavors. I am forever grateful to The Joyce & Thomas Moorehead Foundation for all they have done. I could never say thank you enough."

"I am a junior at North Carolina A&T State University. I was elated to find out that I was a recipient of the scholarship award from the Joyce & Thomas Moorehead Foundation. This scholarship has helped to lighten the financial burden for me and my mom, which gives me room to focus more on my school work without the added stress."

Firstly, I would like to express how immensely grateful I am for the JTMF scholarship. It will really help me ease the cost of college in the years to come. Thank you for supporting me.
Also, could you send my thanks to Mrs. Moorehead for coming down to Lake Braddock to give me the scholarship. I was very touched that she took the time to award the scholarship to me personally.
Again, thank you so much!
To The Trustees Of The Joyce & Thomas Moorehead Foundation,
It is with immense appreciation and deep gratitude that I extend to you this
heartfelt thanks for the wonderful opportunity that you have afforded me through the Joyce & Thomas Moorehead Foundation Scholarship. I recognize that to whom much is given much is required. In light of that, I want you to know that I will do all within my power to live up to the faith and confidence that you have placed in me.
Again thank you so much and I look forward to working with you throughout my collegiate journey.
Thank you! What a surprise last night. We had no idea and to be announced at the Senior Award night was totally unexpected. Your speech on how many candidates and the selection process only had us hoping and when you announced our names, it took our breath away.
We are truly thankful for this award and opportunity. We are looking forward to working closely with the foundation and are so proud to have this special recognition. It was a pleasure meeting you.
Again, thanks to The Joyce & Thomas Moorehead Foundation.
We are sincerely thankful.
