The National Association of Buffalo Soldiers & Troopers Motorcycle Club (NABSTMC) Central Alabama Chapter awarded two scholarships to area graduating students.
The 2021-2022 scholarship recipients are Olivia Jackson, graduating senior of B. B. Comer Memorial High School, and Devon R. Jones, graduating senior of Winterboro High School.
Ms. Jackson plans to pursue her studies in bio medicine at Troy University, and Mr. Jones will pursue his studies in marketing at University of South Alabama.
The Central Alabama Buffalo Soldiers Chapter is made up of dedicated members from Clay, Coosa, Talladega, Tallapoosa, and Lee counties.
Central Alabama Buffalo Soldiers is a chapter of the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers & Troopers Motorcycle Club. It is the world’s largest African American motorcycle club.
NABSTMC was founded by Kenneth (Dream Maker) Thomas in 1993. It is a community-focused organization working daily by helping to feed the homeless, partnering with various national organizations across the country to help build homes for needed families, mentoring youths, and providing scholarships to graduating seniors.
This year recipients across the five frontiers will compete for a total of $50,000, and a National Scholarship of $5,000 will be rewarded to one recipient. The NABSTMC will award a grand total of $55,000 to college-bound graduating high school seniors.
NABSTMC promotes education and higher learning by providing scholarships to graduating high school students who exhibit hard work, dedication and excellent academic skills. The students must complete a required application packet to participate.
The name of the selected scholarship winner will be forwarded to our Southeast Frontier region, then to Nationals to compete for more scholarship funds. This competition consists of graduating high school seniors competing on the national and international level.
NABSTMC is comprised of five frontiers (Northeast, Southeast, Great Lakes, Central, and Western) which encompass 50 states, including Hawaii, with international chapters located in South Korea and Germany. The NABSTMC has more than 113 chapters worldwide.
NABSTMC goals are to serve our communities and to educate the general public about the 9th and 10th Calvary Buffalo Soldiers and their roles with sacrifices in shaping America. NABSTMC members keep their legacy alive by educating the world and riding our iron horses (motorcycles).
