A little encouragement was all Alphonzo Brown needed to put his ambition to work, land a job in the high-growth technology field and grow a small business. That encouragement came in the form of a scholarship through the Louisville Metro Housing Authority and help from staff members. When Alphonzo, a former Clarksdale resident, expressed an interest in college, LMHA staff guided him in the right direction. As a result of their guidance and support, Alphonzo successfully completed his Associate Degree from the RETS Institute of Technology. "The Housing Authority gave me the tools I needed to grow," said Alphonzo.
