Thomas B. Keller Annual Scholarship Award
Aside from the financial support we provide to many not-for-profit organizations, since the passing of Thomas B. Keller in 2015, Brisa Builders has provided annual college scholarships, in memory of our founder, to young men of African descent who are interested in studying fields related to real estate development and/or entrepreneurship. We would like to thank our Platinum Partner in these efforts Mr. Osei Rubie of National Standard Abstract, our Gold Partner Mr. Dan Coakley of Property Management Group- Affordable Housing Division, and our Silver Partner Mr. Kirk Goodrich of Monadnock Development.
The following outlines the recipients of the college scholarship for the past 5 years , who are all members of the Chionesu Bakari Rites of Passage Program which commenced at St Paul’s Community Baptist Church in Brooklyn , New York approximately 15 years ago through the vision of Mr. Horace Moore and the support of Rev. Dr. Johnny Ray Youngblood.
