Milton C. "Skeeter" Douglas Jr. Scholarship Fund

Milton C. "Skeeter" Douglas Jr., a strong family man, was a native Washingtonian, military veteran, public servant and an advocate for African American young men at risk in the inner city. Skeeter believed in providing at-risk young males opportunities to excel in life without the impediments imposed due to the lack of resources, that otherwise would have prevented them from obtaining an education beyond high school. He understood the challenges young males were faced with in the inner city. He was committed to the work and for several years continued however he could, to help numerous youth and young adults he encountered over his lifetime to realize their educational aspirations!

Skeeter famously said "Man Up and take responsibilty for your life"! He says when African American young men have a good foundation of self value, education and moral values, they are able to be the foundation that the traditional family needs. He was definitely that for his family! He lived a good life, was committed to family and community in many ways! His words of wisdom and work will be etched in the mind of many!

His family is committed to honor his legacy and continue to pay it forward! The Milton C. "Skeeter" Douglas Jr. Scholarship Fund has been established in order to provide continued financial support to African American young males to aspire to obtain a college degree or certification from an accredited trade school.

Please donate to help many young men realize thier dreams , become the foundation, be the best they can be and pay it forward!!
