Started by NFL football player, Marcedes Lewis, The Marcedes Lewis Foundation was established to award scholarships to youngsters in the community, who otherwise would not be able to participate in youth sports. The foundation follows each recipient through his/her youth and high school years, assisting with any necessities the student might need as they enter college. Scholarship recipients must maintain specific academic standards and report to the foundation periodically.
