KEISHAN HILLIARD – 2010 NURSING SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

I have been so grateful for the scholarship I have received from your foundation and wanting to show my appreciation, however something always comes up around HUF Awards. Unfortunately, I am working the whole Father’s Day weekend (16-18) because of a delay in the last portion of my nursing program. The scholarship has really stood in the gap when I needed it and it’s been two years. I'm now finishing my Associates Degree Nursing program at El Camino College Compton Center and graduating next week! I'm so thankful for you and your words of encouragement. I will never forget them. Please keep in touch, I am sure I will be free at some point to volunteer and give back to your wonderful cause. Please let me know if there is anything I may do and anytime.

Daijanique Joseph – Reflections from Past scholarship Recipient

Good Morning,

My name is Daijanique Joseph and I have just completed my first year at the University of California Irvine. Before I begin speaking about my college experience thus far I would like to again thank the MEF for awarding me this scholarship in order to assist me in my college career. I am currently still in school, however it is finals week and I am preparing to take my final exams. My entire first year has been an amazing experience and I was able to successfully transition and make a positive impact on and off campus through my involvements. I became a student ambassador through the Student Outreach and Retention center at UCI, I begun teaching and mentoring at underprivileged schools in the Santa Ana and Fountain Valley Areas through Jumpstart UCI and Bridging Anteaters Mentorship Program and much more. On top of that I was able to maintain over a 3.0 gpa every quarter. In summary I believe that my first year at UCI was a success and I look forward to completing the next 3 years.

Thanks again for everything.

Best,
Daijanique Joseph

REFLECTIONS FROM PRIOR SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT - STANLEY PRINCE

My name is Stanley Prince. I am currently a fourth year criminology major at California University Fresno. I am a 2009 MEF Scholarship Recipient. The Mablean Ephriam Foundation has been a blessing to me and my family since they awarded me with a scholarship. Till this very moment, I am very appreciative for the time taken out and the money spent to help me reach my goal of graduating from college and becoming a federal agent. Over these four years, I have overcome many struggles and tribulations. I know it will be all worth it at the end. Throughout college, God has surrounded me with great people to keep me motivated to keep moving forward to accomplish my goal. Ms. Mablean Ephriam has been a great blessing to me. I encourage everyone I come in contact with to not only attend school but graduate just as she motivated me to do the same. Again, I would like to say thank you for your blessing on my life. I pray that God blesses you even more to do bigger and better things.

With love and appreciation

Stanley W. Prince Jr.

Logan Aubert – Thank You Note

Dear Judge Mablean,
Thank you for awarding me this scholarship, I really appreciate it. By awarding me the Judge Mablean Ephriam Foundation scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. I felt very honored to have received this scholarship. I appreciate what you do for young black upcoming college students like myself. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.
Sincerely,
Logan Aubert

Hello Judge, that was the most exhilerating experience that I have had in a loooooooooooooong time. The atmosphere, the people, the place where I sat, the MCs (Lewis et al), plus the food was just first class. I'm looking forward to next year and hope to get more "special people" to comeSmileSmile.

Thank you again for carrying out the vision.

Judge Mablean, you really know how to put together a event, we all had a awesometime, from beginning to end, everything was well organized, we were well entertained, from the comedian, to Mike Phillips, to Loretta Devine, to TremaineHawkins, to all of the Awards and Scholarship Presenters. The food, talking about "Finger Licking Good" their were so much to choose from, I wasn't sure what I wanted, so Idecided to have a little bit of everything. Judge Mablean, I Thank you and Frank Ephriam for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of such an inspirational & important event. I am truly honored. I admire the both of you, for your HARD work & dedication helping support the young people in our community. My prayer is that our heavenly father continue giving you both the Strength, Wisdom, knowledge & passion, to continue for years to come.

Dear Judge Mablean,
Congratulations on a job well done. My family and I truly enjoyed the HUF Awards Ceremony! You and your Team were exceptional. Please know that you were styling! “You Go Girl.” Everything was so well done. Your program is a signature event. I have never had Southern cooking in a hotel. The food was fabulous. Come on now, you can tell me, I know that there had to be some of us in the kitchen (lol). No need to confirm it. I already know (lol).
