TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - A Rickards High School senior is getting a little extra help to pursue his dreams.

Terrance McPherson is the first to receive the Mercedes Hall Thomas Scholarship. It recognizes Terrance for all of his community involvement. He does everything from feeding the homeless to Christmas toy drives and even donating socks to local shelters.

“Just knowing that my parents didn’t have much growing up, for me to be able to give back, and really be able to allow me to do that, my heart wants to make sure I give back every time I have a chance,” Terrance says.

Terrance wants to attend Livingstone College in North Carolina next year and study elementary education.
