Many thanks to all our donors, volunteers, and supporters for a fantastic year!
Here’s a look back into our 2013…
April – We renovated 2 Reading Rooms and interviewed 100 students for our Scholarship Program.
June – 82 students were accepted into our Scholarship Program and will continue to be given scholarships every year until they graduate.
August – A pilot Program Assessment project was completed to develop a protocol for understanding our students’ needs, their greatest barriers to completing college, and our programs’ effectiveness towards helping children get a college degree.
September – Our Annual Benefit Dinner raised over $55,000 with a record number of guests!
October – A small program to connect college graduates to potential employers and recruiters was approved to help new graduates find good jobs when they get out of school.
November – We entered a partnership with Technology Services Corps (TSC) to install laptops into VNSF Reading Rooms in April 2014.
December – 115 new students will be applying in the next couple months for scholarships for the 2014-2015 school year.
Here’s to a fantastic 2014!
