Motlow College MP3 Program hosts awards banquet

May 15, 2014

The Motlow Participant Partnership Program (MP3) recently hosted its annual awards banquet inside the Marcum Technology Center on the Motlow College Moore County campus.

Among the many awards given out during the Motlow Participant Partnership Program (MP3) banquet, two student-athletes were awarded a $300 scholarship each. Brenda Cannon, director of student and campus relations and Dr. Marylou Apple, president of the college, present one of the scholarships to Briana McDonald.
The banquet celebrated students and mentors for their involvement in the mentoring program, according to Regina Burden, assistant vice president for student affairs.

"The annual celebration banquet culminates a year of commitment, hard work, and accomplishments," said Burden. "This year's celebration focused on the people who make MP3 successful - the mentees and volunteer mentors. The keynote speaker, Lt. Col. Tracy Kinslow, captured the essence of everyone involved in the program as he spoke about passion, purpose, and position."

Among the many awards given out during the MP3 banquet, two student-athletes were each awarded a $300 scholarship. Brenda Cannon, director of student and campus relations and Dr. Marylou Apple, president of the college, present one of the scholarships to Kerby Lubin.
MP3 is an academic, cultural, and social enrichment program that leads to student success. The goal of the mentoring program is to provide support for the mentee by allowing them to have an opportunity to meet with their mentor to discuss and share successes and concerns as well as explore areas for improvement.

"Being a mentor is a rewarding and powerful experience. With each mentee, I hope to provide support and encouragement," said Sonya Hood, director of disability and testing services at Motlow and program mentor. "At the end of the year, I always feel I have gained just as much or more from the experience than the mentee. It is such a blessing to be able to have the one-on-one interaction with these students."

The Motlow College Foundation funded multiple scholarships to MP3 participants, including $300 scholarships to Briana McDonald of Tullahoma and Kerby Lubin of Orlando, Florida.
