The 30th Annual Greater Houston Frontiers Club’s

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Scholarship Breakfast

at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Hall B

1001 Avenida de las Americas,, Houston Tx 77002

“Embracing our Diversity,
Celebrating our Heritage.”

The North Houston Frontiers Club, Inc. (NHFC) is a non-profit, 501(c) (3) service organization, dedicated to providing educational and charitable assistance to minority students in the greater Houston area.

This year’s theme, "Embracing our Diversity, Celebrating our Heritage.”   Dr. King’s legacy reminds us of the strength of empowerment, the importance of celebrating the club’s  diversity and  steadfast commitment to support the leaders of the future.

Net proceeds from the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Breakfasts are used to fund the Frontiers’ Scholarship Program. During the past 3 decades, the Frontiers have awarded  $1,142,000 to 456 students in the Houston
-Harris County area.  This year’s goal is an ambitious  to help them advance in their educational endeavors.

The 2018 Frontiers’ prestigious Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drum Major Award will be presented to Rushion McDonald, a two-time Emmy Award-Winning television producer, sitcom writer, former stand-up comic and the architect behind the Steve Harvey Global Media Brand.

"Our goal is to help alleviate and eventually illuminate the barriers that underrepresented students experience when striving to attend and complete post secondary education” said Karen Levingston-Franklin, the 2018 Scholarship Breakfast Committee Chair.  Donnell Cooper is the Greater Houston Frontiers Club President.
