“My name is Najee Ellerbe, and I am currently in my senior year at Virginia State University. My major is Mass Communications with a concentration in Public Relations. That educational experience has prepared me to hold internships with DCRA (Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs), The Cal Ripken Sr. Baseball League, Minor League Baseball, and the Washington Wizards. Without the kindness of the members of the Prince Hall Freemasons and Eastern Star Charitable Foundation, my college experience would have been far more challenging financially. Each year they have been generous in providing scholarship assistance, and I am grateful for their support and encouragement.”
