Youth Realities Require More than Hard Work, They Require Scholarships

The young people of our region are fortunate to grow up in beautiful surroundings, this is true. But many of our kids are living realities much deeper and rawer than some adults may imagine. Poverty, bullying and peer-pressure are just some of the obstacles they face. Still, their determination is incredible. Scholarships help us help them rise above circumstances to achieve their dreams.
