~Honoring NaJada’s life and legacy by financially aiding members of Martinsville and Henry County in the pursuit of a career in Early Childhood Education~
Shortly after Na'Jada's death on January 10, 2020, we felt the need to help Na'Jada's legacy live on by helping others, as Na'Jada was so passionate about...through education.
Her Godfather, Charles A. Hairston, from Sandy Level, her Godmother, Edna Perkins "Nicky" also from Sandy Level, her Pastor, Reverend Keishawn Niblett of High Ridge Baptist Church in Axton, and her Early Childhood Education teacher at Magna Vista High School, Beth Stanley Lawson, of Ridgeway, Virginia came together to make it happen. So, on January 10, 2021 we had an official kick off on the one year anniversary of the beginning of our part of her legacy.
We have partnered with Patrick Henry Community College to offer the
Na'Jada C. Joyce Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Here at the Na'Jada C. Joyce Memorial Scholarship, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. We believe that it was Na'Jada's passion to teach children and make an impact in their lives. Because Na'Jada loved children the way she did, we thought it was best to remember her through a scholarship for those who were going to follow in Na'Jada's footsteps.
