My name is Zachary Lucas, a native of Mobile, AL and a proud graduate of LeFlore High School and Tuskegee University. I will be hosting the first annual “College Days Throwback Scholarship Cabaret” on Friday, September 13, 2019. The event will be held from 9 p.m. – 1:00 a.m. at the Locale, which is located on 4128 Government Boulevard in Mobile, Alabama. Our main target audience are college alumni and Greek organizations (graduate and undergraduate chapters). I am seeking to host an annual event in our home town where we can bring the city of Mobile together and surrounding areas together to help send multiple high school seniors to college while also celebrating and honoring our respective colleges and their unique cultures. I will be giving away two scholarships, and both scholarships will be heavily decided by the attendance of local college alumni chapters and the members of the Greek Community (undergrad and graduate members encouraged to participate).

THE 1st SCHOLARSHIP… “School Spirit” Scholarship

I would love to grow this initiative to where one day we are able to send a child to school for all 4 years. I graduated from Tuskegee University with a degree in Accounting in 2011 and I currently work at the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, OH as a Management Analyst. There is no way that I would have made it to this point in my life without the help of mentors and organizations within the city. This is my duty and obligation to come back home and help other students the same way I was helped along the way. I would love to speak to someone from your team about your company being a sponsor, consideration for a donation towards a scholarship, or just general support for my event. I am hoping this ignites an interest in each of you to come out and be a part of helping us send two children to college. Feel free to contact me for any questions or concerns you may have.
