Legacy Scholarship

TLC Legacy Scholarship

The Light Church of Clayton, NC is launching its “Legacy Scholarship” for High School Seniors who are active members of TLC and WeLEAD Generation. The scholarship seeks to assist students with their expenses related to furthering their education after high school. The “Legacy Scholarship” also seeks to encourage, motivate and push our youth to be “The Light” and to be strong leaders as they pursue greater accomplishments in their life. In awarding the scholarship, TLC considers each applicant’s commitment to his or her local church, community service, leadership experience and scholastic achievements. TLC Legacy Scholarship will award at least one student with a $500 scholarship. Once awarded, the student will be inducted into the Legacy Alumni. We understand the importance of a legacy because of the impression that was made upon the life of our leaders by Apostle Lawrence Bogier, Jr. As a church, we intend to make an impression upon all that follow “The Light.”

Matthew 5:14 – Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
