Mobile Freshman Wins Support
Madison English, a freshman at the University of South Alabama, has been selected to receive a full scholarship called the 100 Black Men USA Scholars of Perseverance and Social Justice.

Madison English, a freshman at the University of South Alabama, plans to follow several women from her family into the field of nursing.
Her grandmother, JoAnn Dunning, was a nurse who worked for many years in Mobile. She had some advice for her granddaughter.
“She told me to make sure to join a study group,” English said. “It’s not going to be easy. Stay on top of everything you do.”
