Our True Barbie Fan

Marilyn Harvey’s story is about a mother’s obsession of both the NBA and Barbie that leads to a journey to find the final NBA Barbie doll for her daughter, Candice Harvey, an FVSU alumna of our alumni chapter. It’s an interesting tale of 'Love and Basketball' that concludes in tears of joy.

Christian Maxwell is our “Live Your Dream” scholarship recipient that represents the legacy of the late, FVSC alumna, Dr. Genevieve Knight, Ph.D that recognizes students that who have overcome significant obstacles to pursue an education in Mathematics, the Sciences and Education. Christian is an incoming freshmen from Bowie, Maryland. Christian understand the meaning of this scholarship to overcome significant obstacles. Christian has a disability that he no longer has vision in his left eye. Instead of, finding the easy way out, his family recognized his struggles and sought help. Through the support of his family, he didn’t allow his disability to limit him and continue to succeed academically. Christian’s quote, “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.”

On behalf our president, Terry Love and the many alumni and supporters of the alumni chapter, we want to again congratulate our 2023-2024 scholarship recipient!
