Student Success Stories
Meet Our Alumni
Since our founding in 2000, we have provided grants for more than 68 students.
Some grants gave the applicant an opportunity to enroll in a one-time career-advancing course. Other recipients applied for—and were granted—funds to contribute toward tuition every semester of college.
We are thrilled to share a dozen of their stories with you here. Along with their families, we are so proud of their accomplishments.
