 "I was excited when many years ago our community came together to start a Dollars for Scholars chapter to assist in the critical task of making access to college a real possibility for ALL students. The banner above our Middle School front door says "The Safeguard of Our Nation" I truly believe there is no better way the citizens of this great country can invest in the continued strength and safety of our nation than to be certain our kids know they live in a community that encourages and supports their efforts to continue education well beyond high school. That is the message of CC Dollars for Scholars to kids K-12, in our community."
