The Scholarship Fashion Show is being held in honor of Donnell C. Callis.  He was a mild mannered, humble and kind-spirited person. When we think about him, a smile come on our faces. Donnell was born December 13, 1967, to the parents of Norman Jr. and Barbara Jean Callis. Donnell graduated from James Monroe High School, attended Hampton University and would have graduated in May 1993.  He pledged Omega Psi Phi Fraternity in 1990, building on the "gentle spirit" theme.  His line name was, "Mr. Rogers" as referenced by the TV Show, Mister Rogers Neighborhood.  Just like the show and its host, Donnell was admired for his quiet simplicity and gentleness. Donnell enjoyed the daily interaction with his line brothers, whether it was step practicing, Monday night meetings, community outreach, road trips or just plain old "fellowshipping" Donnell was just a "people person," merely enjoying being with his friends. Donnell joined the Marine Corps Reserve & served his country during the Persian Gulf War - he specifically served in Operation Desert Storm. 
 
Donnell went to glory on November 26, 1992, Thanksgiving Day, six months before his graduation from Hampton University. 
 
The Macedonia Church Family and Pastor Carroll Jackson, will award a scholarship to a student who will be furthering their education an exudes the same qualities, just like Donnell.  The Fashion Show Scholarship leads the way to "A Runway to Higher Education" which is our theme for the Fashion Show.  Donnell will forever be with us in spirit and we will continue to live his legacy!!
