Ten Fort Bend County Seniors Awarded Scholarships Through Expose Excellence Youth Program Foundation

(RICHMOND) – Ten Fort Bend County high school seniors have been awarded college scholarships from Chakilla and Judge Lewis White through the Expose Excellence Youth Program Foundation.

The Fort Bend County Expose Excellence Youth Program Foundation announced this week that 10 local students were awarded a total of $20,000 in scholarships from the Chakilla and Judge Lewis White College Scholarship Fund. In its inaugural year, the scholarships were awarded to deserving students pursuing higher education after high school. The scholarships were based on an application process and were open to students who had gained admission to any two year or four-year higher education institution. Selected students received a total of $2,000 each towards tuition for the Fall 2023 and Fall 2024 school semesters.

Expose Excellence Youth Program Foundation, founded by Fort Bend District Attorney Brian Middleton, aims to provide support for youth between the ages of 10-17 through leadership and development training offered by the existing Expose Excellence Youth Program.

Middleton started the youth program to provide a “safe environment for youth interaction while promoting positive self-expression and the development of life skills and artistic expression.”

Chakilla White and her husband, Judge Lewis White, pledged $30,000 to Expose Excellence Youth Program Foundation at their 2022 “Christmas Cheers” fundraiser. The pledge was to create a college scholarship fund for graduating Fort Bend County youth.

“Our education has been instrumental in helping us achieve both professional and personal goals. We are grateful for the opportunity to support Fort Bend youth in pursuing their higher education dreams,” said Chakilla and Judge Lewis White.
