Singer Jonathan McReynolds Set to Give Out Scholarships Through His Organization

McReynolds hopes to encourage others to purse their dreams and embrace higher education, as stated on his organization’s website:

“In his opinion, the African-American community and the African-American Church do not adequately encourage its musicians, preachers, and, quite frankly, any of its spiritual leaders to pursue higher education for the development of those gifts and talents,” McReynolds’ website explains, describing the inspiration behind the scholarships. “He immediately wanted to be able to celebrate the young people that did take the plunge into art school or seminary with the purpose of using their gifts to more effectively communicate the Gospel and Christian wisdom.”
