The Annie May Avery Johnson (AMAJ) Scholarship Committee will host its first 5K Run/Walk for Education on Saturday, September 7, 2019 at 8:00am. The 5K will take place at Shelby Farms. This 5K will help fund the Annie May Avery Johnson Scholarship which is given to graduating high school seniors in the city of Memphis that meet the scholarship criteria.
Along with promoting higher education, the purpose for our 5K Run/Walk is to support the achievements of our youth by providing resources to help them achieve their higher education goals and needs. We are hoping to increase the number of scholarships awarded to these students.
