Hear from our scholarship recipients:
"This scholarship is a tremendous help. My experience working at Publix during a pandemic while trying to finish high school was tough at first. We've never had an experience like this, but the support and recognition that the Class of 2020 and frontline employees have received is heartwarming and makes it all worth it. Thank you to your amazing foundation!"
Shanice, a 2020 recipient from Jupiter High School will be majoring in Biology at the University of Central Florida.
"While graduating from high school during these unprecedented times has had both its highs and lows, I am especially thankful for this scholarship because it will help me throughout my four years of college to limit my student debt. This will allow me to focus on my academics at Florida College as I learn more about marketing and finance in order to succeed in my future career."
Paige, a 2020 recipient from Seminole Ridge High School will be majoring in Marketing at Florida College.
"I’m so appreciative of scholarship donors at the Community Foundation. In spring 2019, I’ll graduate with my Bachelor’s Degree in health and human services; Master’s Degree in gerontology. I’ve also been accepted to medical school, which I plan to begin next fall. Through this scholarship, my dream of becoming a physician has been made more possible.”
