Continuing Education Program Fund
To help students grow and learn both professionally and personally, our Program Fund has provided many students with the opportunity to take a continuing education class, which would not have been possible without donations from businesses and the community. Children from low-income families have the chance to attend our GEMS program as well as other youth programs, for little or no cost to them. Our Fund brings people to a college campus and in many cases, has sparked an interest in higher education for students of all ages, who then go on to take credit courses to earn a degree.
