ALPH SIGMA OMEGA EDUCATION FOUNDATION IMPACT STATEMENTS FOR 2010
A primary purpose of the Foundation is that of encouraging and assisting students and adults to reach for and achieve academic excellence. To this end we commit ourselves to the following for 2010:
1. We will recognize, via a citywide event up to 900 middle school students with grade point averages of 3.5 or higher for their academic achievement.
2. We will award scholarships totaling $5000 to six Franklin County (Ohio) high school graduating seniors.
3. We will assist at least 20 high school students and their parents in understanding and completing college application packets via workshops and one-to-one assistance to review student packets. A special focus will be on helping the students to write effective essays and to produce overall quality application packets. This effort will be structured primarily for juniors and seniors in 2010, but will include 9th and 10th graders in later years. 
4. Work in a variety of ways with at least three community partners to promote increased student achievement.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Education has always created opportunity. But in today’s complex world and global economy, education means survival. Acquiring the necessary skills to succeed is, more than ever before, a never ending, lifelong process, requiring funding long before the traditional college years and well after. Over the past seven years, we have remained enthused, purposeful, and vigilant in living out our mission."
