Teacher, Kanesville High School

"It's a struggle for most of our students to find the means to go on to college. The Foundation not only gives them that financial support, but the encouragement of saying that they are worthy of the assistance. It's a boost for them in more ways than one."

Counselor, Treynor

"It can be frustrating to work with students willing to try to go on to college but who don't have the means. The Foundation offers that support to kids."

Counselor, Underwood

"Every year, it's such a joy to see the scholarships awarded. It's not only wonderful to see the kids' reactions, but the parents'. They are so proud and so happy to have that extra help."
