On January 25, 2020, the Community Action Alliance’s Education Committee presented scholarship vouchers for the 2020 school year to twenty-six students. One additional student is receiving a special scholarship for English Second Language studies; and an additional high school student has just been approved for participation. CAA will support up to 30 high school students in 2020.
Additionally, this scholarship class includes one degreed University student of Social Work who is completing her licensing requirements while serving her sixth year as our Scholarship Program Administrative Intern. And, we plan to offer another university social worker student a scholarship while being trained to assume the role of CAA’s University Scholarship Program Administrative Intern in 2021.
And, we celebrated the December 2019 high school graduation of four of our students. All four are continuing their education through university or technical school courses in 2020, and we wish them the best in those advanced studies.
CAA’s Education Committee expects to provide about $14,000 in direct educational support for 32 students in 2020. This level of educational support would not be possible without the generosity and hard work of CAA volunteers and donations from our faithful network of “friends and family” supporters.
Thank you for supporting the educational dreams of these students - an investment in education for these students is an investment for life.
