Moussa Temple Shrines provide Student Aid for Local Youth
SAN ANTONIO (July 26, 2018) - Continuing to assist college-bound students with the cost of attaining a higher education, the Prince Hall Shriners of Moussa Temple No. 106 awarded two $1,000 Student Aid Grants to two young women during their Past Potentate CW Bankston Memorial Student Aid Program held at the Masonic Temple on the city’s eastside.
“One of the pillar programs of the Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles Mystic Shrine, Inc., is to assist in providing student aid to our youth,” said Noble Larry Smith, Moussa’s student aid director. “We had more than 15 students apply and we selected the two-best qualified.”
Awardees were Lauryn Taylor, a graduate of Johnson High School, who will be studying Biomedical Engineering at the Tandon School of Engineering at New York University in New York, and Ashley Ramon of John Jay Science and Engineering Academy, who will be studying Biochemistry with minor in Forensic Science at St. Mary’s University.
Noble Burrell Parmer, the Illustrious Potentate of Moussa Temple thanked all for attending and wished the students the best in the future.
“It is our hope and prayer that you enter your next journey focused on the tasks of learning, becoming a well-rounded individual, and keeping your faith in God,” said I.P. Parmer. “I also want to thank the parents, for without good parenting and guidance, Ashley and Lauryn may not be receiving these grants today.”
