Oklahoma Native Teaches Students How To Win Scholarships After Receiving Over A Million Dollars In Scholarships

The Oklahoma native who won over $1 million in college scholarships in her hometown is back teaching high school students how to do the same!

The last time News On 6 met Raylynn Thompson was in 2019. She was a student at Muskogee High School and received 64 college acceptance letters and more than $1 million in scholarships.

“You really have to keep going forward to as many people as you can see and never stop because you never know where you are going to land,” said Raylynn Thompson, a current student at Alcorn State University in Lorman, Mississippi.

“I’m a biologist, a premedic, and I’m a biochemist,” Thompson said. “I want to go to medical school to become a research physician. I want to research different types of foods and herbs and see if we can work on healing the body.”

Her mom says Raylene came home from school and she wants to give back.

There were some people in my community who remembered my name and were also asking for help. I was like, “Well, if my family needs me and the people in my community need me, why don’t we come together and help everyone?” Thomson said.

I partnered with a friend from college and together they held a scholarship seminar, to teach high school students how to get as much scholarship money as possible.

They will talk about how students raise their GPAs, ACT scores, and excel in applications.

“I was fighting with my ACT score, trying to raise it. The last time I took it, I raised it by one point, from 23 to 24 and went from ten thousand dollars in scholarships to 15 thousand. That point really matters, and I don’t want to,” Thompson said. That kids give up because they think their scores are too low.”

This event will take place on Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Martin Luther King Center in Muskogee.

It is completely free and open to anyone in grades 9-12.

Muskogee Brick Optimist Club, Live2Love, Joyful Noise TV Network, Anthony Wooden, and Martin Luther King Center in Muskogee donated to the Foundation to help give back to young people for this event.
