How the Educational Fund Started PDF  | Print |  E-mail

The Henry L. Howard Educational Fund was established in 2004 in honor of Henry L. Howard, who was a well known community leader in the Central Savannah River Area. Henry L. Howard was a community leader, family man, a political participant, and served as producer of the Parade of Quartets. The Parade of Quartets is the longest continuous running gospel program in America. Henry L. Howard was involved with many other civic organizations. His life was a life of service for all people.

The Howard family began the fund to continue promoting his passion for young people. He emphasized the importance of equipping young people with the necessary educational tools to succeed in life. Initial funds for the fund came from donations from friends at the passing of Henry L. Howard. In order to continue the fund, a compilation disk of songs that he sang was produced from his years of singing. The CD is advertised on Parade of Quartets. The monies collected are used for scholarships to deserving students. Since its inception we have given four scholarships in the amount of $500 each to local area students to assist them with the furtherance of their education. The students were required to write an essay about the history of Parade of Quartets. Our board chose the recipients based on their research and knowledge of the Parade of Quartets.

The legacy of Henry L. Howard is one that mirrors helping young people to achieve their highest educational goals. We recognize the greater need and we are seeking ways to increase our contributions to fulfill his passion for the youth. We view this partnership with your company as a positive public relation opportunity to let our well established and loyal viewing audience know of your concern for educational advancement and giving back to the community.

The Henry L. Howard Educational Fund, Inc is a non-profit corporation in the state of Georgia.
