Lee Lane - Secrtary, Single Parent Scholarship Fund (Logan County) - July 18th, 2016
Because of your generosity, a single parent scholar is a step closer to fulfilling her/his dreams of a post-secondary education.
Thank you for sponsoring the hole-in-one Golf Cart opportunity for the Fourth Annual SPSFLC Golf Tournament. We had 60 players, a thunder storm and a beautiful day on Saturday, July 9, 2016.
This year we have given 34 scholarships to deserving Logan County single parents and are planning on providing 15 more scholarships for the fall 2016 semester. Our Scholars attend Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, ATUOzark, University of Arkansas Ft. Smith and University of Central Arkansas. As you may know Paris Economic & Community Development is working with a Partnership of local manufacturers, business leaders, schools, health care providers, legislators, elected officials and interested citizens to build a Logan County Career Center which offers (1) Industrial Automation Technology and (2) Allied Health Care Programs. In 2015-16 the programs were offered in temporary facilities at the Paris High School. This Center will allow our scholars to continue their post-secondary training in Paris. This will surely help these scholars attain their employment goals and financial stability for their children faster and easier.
