The Michigan Chronicle & TCF Bank Present the 2021 S.W.A.G. Scholarship Awards

As explained by Hiram E. Jackson, Publisher of the Michigan Chronicle, The S.W.A.G. Scholarship Awards (Students Wired for Achievement and Greatness) were “specifically created to ensure that more minority students in Detroit who demonstrate leadership in multiple areas, other than grades, have access to scholarships.”

I spoke with LaTrice McClendon, Senior Vice President and Director of Community Relations at TCF Bank about the scholarships and why it is so important to get your high school senior to apply.

For more information and to apply, go to ; you have until April 9th 2021.

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
