OVAASA

During my month long hiatus, I decided to do something that I always wanted to do. I started an organization. It is called the Ohio Valley African American Students Association. I quickly found out that it is easy to start an organization, but difficult to make it real. It involves tons of paperwork, and things like PO Boxes, Tax IDs, Logos, and Letterheads. After that was established, I concentrated on my first event. I wanted to have a Banquet. I wanted to honor each and every black high school senior in the Ohio Valley with some sort of recognition, at a fancy sit down dinner. After some butt kissing and begging, On May 27th, 2010 at West Virginia Northern Community College, the first annual Ohio Valley African American Students Association's awards banquet took place.

It was one of the proudest moments of my life. Now, I'm doing everything I can to make the OVAASA self-sustainable and able to provide scholarships, interships, and college visits. If any of you reading this would like to help out; our e-mail address is ovaasa@gmail.com. You can follow us on Twitter at https://twitter.com/ovaasa and if you would like to send us a donation or any other correspondence, you can do so at OVAASA PO Box 6497 Wheeling, WV 26003. Donations should be made out to OV African American Students Association. I'm excited. I think everyone should find something to get behind and promote, that would better the world. It really makes you feel like you're making a difference. But that's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I?

Congratulations!

I truly enjoyed the banquet and I look forward to many events held under the OVAASA.

As a famous quote states:
“When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better.”

Mr. Scott, You truly are making a difference.
