The Hour-A Day Study Club, is one of the longest running, non-profit, female driven organizations in Canada. Established in 1934, The Hour-A-Day Study Club provides African-Canadian youth, that are descendants of the Underground Railroad, with scholarship funds to help finance their post-secondary education. Each year, students graduating from high school within the Windsor/Essex County community are eligible to apply.
"My name is Jonah Moore. I am a graduate of General Amherst High School. Since graduating, I have been attending St. Clair College pursuing a diploma in Business Administration. I chose the course in Business Administration because I would eventually like to own my own business. I am an active volunteer as I coach at basketball camps, referee soccer games and volunteered with "Stuff the Bus" which is an organization that collects donations of toys, food, and clothes and gives everything away to those in need. Jonah received the Martha C. Elliott-Tolson & George R. Tolson Sr. Bursary"
