We believe that by invest­ing in the future of our stu­dents we are also invest­ing in our col­lec­tive future as a com­mu­nity, state and nation.  One of the way we choose to invest in the future of our stu­dents is through our Schol­ar­ships for Suc­cess pro­gram.  Each year The Edu­ca­tion Foun­da­tion awards over 70 col­lege schol­ar­ships to local pub­lic high school seniors rang­ing from $1,000 to 4-year tuition schol­ar­ships.   For more infor­ma­tion regard­ing the Senior Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram, please con­tact Pro­gram Direc­tor Rachel Stim­ler at (352) 955‑7003.
