Hey alumni it's Ms. Salvetta coming to you with some great news from Friends of Foundation. So Friends of Foundation this year year launched the Persistence Grant for the class of 2021. And, that grant awarded them with a $1,000. $250 dollars per year for up to four years after high school graduation. For use of supplies, on tuition tools if you're a trade school or tuition for trade school... um and now they've raised enough money to help anyone from the classes of 2018, 2019, and 2020 who are currently enrolled or planning to enroll and go back for up to four years after high school graduation. So, for those of you in class of 2020, sorry 2018 who are still enrolled, you can get $250 to help you with books this term or supplies from this term or the Spring term. Trying to get those spring books paid for as you round out your college career. 2019 you have up to $500 that you can earn and 2020 you have up to $750 that you can claim. The link will be on our Instagram bio. We will also send it out an email we want you to have this money to help you push on through.
