By BBN Staff: Belize City Councilor, Micah Goodin, has launched the 2nd annual Micah Goodin Scholarship Fund.
Last year through a series of barbecue sales Goodin was able to raise $11,500.
Mayor Bernard Wagner then matched Goodin bringing the total to $21,500.
With this total Goodin was able to assist 43 university students with $500 towards their tuition.
Goodin told our newsroom it’s a small step in the right direction.
According to him, when PUP forms central government education will be free up to 6th form.
For this year Goodin is seeking to raise $30,000 to assist 60 Belize City Students.
His first barbecue fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday at the Battlefield Park.
