Frank W. Watson was a lifelong advocate for education and minority business. OhioMBE Publisher Ronda Watson Barber is honoring her late father by establishing The Frank W. Watson Scholarship.
Frank founded one of Central Ohio’s first college access programs in the 1970s, Tomorrow’s Education Now. The non-profit Model Cities program assisted hundreds of Columbus City School students with completing financial aid forms The program also took them on college visits.
The scholarship will be awarded to a Columbus East High School student who is participating in either basketball or track& field. An additional scholarship is awarded to another talented high school student. The scholarship will be used for post-secondary education. To date we are assisting 10 students.
