Jay Collins decided in April of 2019, to enter SPAA's annual writing contest and submitted two (2) chapters for the contest. That entry was then chosen for SPAA's collaboration book, "The Seeds of Truth". Such an honor in itself, but then SPAA's Founder & CEO, Dr. Michael V. Wilkins awarded Jay the SGM. Hartman Wilkins Scholarship which covered the cost to publish and release my first book, "The Spirituals". Jay states "It is still difficult for me to even talk about this experience because I get so emotional. I don't know if I will ever be able to express my gratitude to my mentor Dr. Mike for investing in me through the years and then pushing and motivating me to make my dream a reality. I am forever grateful! "
