Carson Scholar launches clothing company

Hello, my name is Jarvis C. Veira, and I am 2004 Carson Scholar! 

Last year, I graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science in Fiber Science and Apparel Design specializing in Menswear. Initially, I began at Cornell as a pre-med student, but I soon realized that my true dream was to become a Menswear designer and start my own clothing company.

Ben Carson Reading Day 2014

Many students hurried into school with excitement on Monday, November 17. They could not wait for guests to arrive at their school to read for Ben Carson Reading Day! Ben Carson Reading Day is an annual event held in conjunction with American Education Week.  It is designed to raise awareness of the importance of reading and to promote daily leisure reading. To celebrate, schools around the country will be sharing Dr. Carson’s narration of Jan Pinborough’s children’s book, Miss Moore Thought Otherwise, with their students.

Previous Scholars Seeking Renewed Status

By now, previous scholars still in school, in grades 5-12, should have recieved this year's application for the 2015 Scholarship Cycle.

If you have not, or if you have misplaced it, please email Kaylee. In the email, please provide your full name and date of birth. 


Less than 50 days until #GivingTuesday! #GivingTuesday season is in full swing and the Carson Scholars Fund is committed to make this year's #GivingTuesday bigger and better than ever!
