Black, Korean Leaders Come Together to Give a Scholarship to the Girl who Never Missed a Day of SchoolDallas Observer

At exactly noon on Monday, 16-year-old Bria Bradshaw and her mother Charmaine walked into Tommy Pak’s Kwik Stop in South Dallas, then stopped short. There was a horde of men and women in the convenience store, black and Korean, and most were in suits. There were video cameras set up toward the back, by the beer fridges, and photographers were on one knee, furiously clicking away.
“Surprise!” everyone yelled.
Bria still didn’t know what was going on. Then, someone procured the money: three large checks equaling $13,500 that would go toward her college tuition when she graduates from Hillcrest High School next year. That’s when Charmaine started to cry.
