Young single mothers can be found in every community. While stable two-parent families are generally considered to be the best environment for young children, the reality is that many children are raised in single parent homes. Many of these homes are headed by single mothers, often with significant financial disadvantages.  Daron’s family does not presume to judge these young women, but wishes to aid those who have committed themselves through employment and education to a responsible future, and especially to help the children in these homes.


Your tax-deductible contribution to the Daron Malik Jae Simpson Memorial Scholarship Fund, large or small, would assist Daron’s family in meeting this heartfelt goal. The Fund is administered by the Mohawk Valley Community College Foundation, 1101 Sherman Drive, Utica, NY 13501, a 501-C3 organization. Information on the Foundation, MVCC or the scholarship fund established in memory of Daron is available by contacting Frank DuRoss, MVCC’s Executive Director of Institutional Advancement, by telephone at (315) 792-5526, or by email at To learn more about Mohawk Valley Community College, visit its web site at
