SNCCF participated with the Kiwanis Club of Fremont in their “Turn Around Scholarship”. We received a medallion in recognition of our participation.
This scholarship is a project for at-risk high school seniors who “turned around” their lives after disastrous beginnings.
The program’s recipients are being honored because they confronted and overcame problems such as substance abuse and addiction, abusive parents and guardians, poverty, homelessness, physical handicap or illness challenges. Recipients are courageous young people who have overcome these obstacles and are looking forward to completing a 4-year college/university, a community college, or a trade school.
Scholarships are provided to high school seniors who will be graduating at mid-year or at year-end of the current school year. Each student has been assigned a Kiwanis Club of Fremont mentor who will be there for them in their college years and monitor their progress, giving advice and encouragement so their goal of a diploma is realized.
