RHS Alum Fametta Zubah Sponsors Scholarship for Graduating Seniors

RHS Alum Fametta Zubah Sponsors Scholarship for Graduating Seniors

This is the second year that the FAM Z Alumni Scholarship has been offered to Richfield High School graduating seniors. Created in 2021 by RHS graduate Fametta Zubah, this scholarship is an excellent example of giving back to the community. Her hope is that the scholarship will help one of our graduating seniors to offset the financial burden of pursuing higher education. 

Fametta is currently a sophomore at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and is studying Strategic Communications with an emphasis on Public Relations and Advertising, with a minor in Leadership. “I am so happy with my major and minor, I feel like it really aligns with everything I am doing in life,” said Fametta.

When asked about her goals for the future, she told us that her biggest goal is to be the first person in her immediate family to graduate from college. She also talked about her passion for modeling and working with brands, either in an ad agency or independently as an ambassador, and hopes to continue doing that.

Fametta decided to sponsor a scholarship for Richfield graduates because when she was a senior, she received enough scholarships to cover her undergraduate expenses, thanks to Richfield and her counselors. “I know how hard and stressful it is to want to pursue your education but have to worry about how you're going to pay for it,” she explained, “so I decided that I wanted to help alleviate some of that financial stress since I have been blessed enough to be in a position to do so.”

“I wanted this scholarship to be community-based because I grew up in a household where the statement ‘It takes a village’ was constantly being repeated,” explained Fametta. “Hearing that, and seeing my parents always being active members of our community, made me want to engage in my community as well and that has truly become a big part of my life as a volunteer and through community service.” Fametta believes that it is important to show up for your community because you never know the impact you can have on others in need.

For 2023 graduates, Fametta offers some advice: “Don't be afraid to bet on yourself. If you're passionate about something, or you see yourself in a role or career field or whatever the case may be, fully believe that you have the ability to accomplish and pursue anything your heart desires. If you can't believe in yourself, you can't expect others to believe in you!”

Applications for the $500 FAM Z Alumni Scholarship closed on March 23 and the recipient will be announced in April. Students can find available scholarships in the Career & Counseling Center ParentSquare group (accessible only to high school students and families). Fametta plans to continue sponsoring the scholarship for Richfield High School students in the years to come. “I love making an impact whenever I have the ability to,” she said. “I love being a Spartan and I will forever be one!”
