Focus on African-American Males in Education (FAME)

FAME is designed to promote college-going among African American males by strengthening social skills, emotional well-being, and academic achievement through high school and college academic support systems. For additional information, please contact Rahman Stokes, FAME Counselor, at 330-494-6170, ext. 4854 or by email at rstokes@starkstate.edu.

Eligibility: FAME is available to African American males from these districts – Canton City, Massillon, Alliance, and Plain Local. Those students considered eligible for FAME are “first generation” college students from low-income families who are at risk academically. The students are selected as sophomores to earn six college credits in their junior and senior year.
