Youth Ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church
Yvette Bolden Scholarship
The Yvette Bolden Scholarship Fund was started in the early 1970s. It was funded by Yvette’s parents Lula and Edward Bolden in memory of Yvette who passed away at an early age. Each year on the 2nd Sunday in June, Trinity Lutheran Church celebrates Education Sunday. During the program students who attend Trinity are recognized. Those who are graduating and going on to college or continuing their college education receive a book scholarship. The students are all acknowledged for their talents, academic achievements, participation in Sunday School and church activities.
The funds for Education Sunday are donations received from the All Saints’ Memorial Booklets and other donations received during the year in memory or in honor of loved ones. Following the presentations, a reception is held in honor of the students. The members of Trinity continue to encourage and support their youth as they grow in God's grace and become leaders in their church, school and community.
