STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Over the past two years our Scholarship Alumni Project has been created to find out what happened to the students who received scholarships since the inception of the organization more than 20 years ago. As a result of reaching out to them, we have formed an Alumni Committee to get involved in local events and join with our members in spreading the word about the impact we have had on these students and those they impact."
