In honor of Mavis & Patricia Shirley, the Pathways to Success Education Consulting, LLC., will award a one-time $1,000 scholarship to one recipient from the class of 2022 from the Northeastern Academy Main Campus. The Mavis & Patricia Shirley Memorial Scholarship was created to honor a mother and daughter who believed wholeheartedly in Adventist education and saw fit to ensure that children from the Shirley family attended the Northeastern Academy Main Campus, located in New York City.
