Our Alumni in the Community

Each year the Foundation is supported by over 100 Scholarship Alumni Volunteers from every year since 1999. Our scholarship recipients 'Pay it Forward' in the community by volunteering their time to mentor new scholarship recipients, at-risk teens, and support the Foundation by participating in fundraising and program planning.
