We're young but we've already had an impact!
When SASS was founded in 2010, we awarded 2 community college scholarships; in spring, 2013, we awarded 40! In addition, we've helped 44 students pay for GED tests, 90% of whom passed and thereby earned a High School Equivalency Diploma. Our fund-raisers have helped make all this happen.
