For the 11th year in a row, my wife and I provided scholarship funds for five youngsters entering college from the Sarasota County Boys and Girls Clubs. These funds are to assist with their education, books, etc. The youngsters are selected by Club President, Mack Reid and his staff.
I am so proud to be a supporter of this great organization and to be able to lend a little help to five youngsters each year as they prepare for a college education.
Mack does a tremendous job at the Club, as does Roy McBean. My wife and I love being a small part of it!
This year's scholarship recipients are:
Kristopher Powell, 18, New World School of the Arts in Miami
Katrina Tarton, 18, Troy University
Freddy Denord, 18, Manatee Community College
Kelsey Obbema, 18, Manatee Community College
Anthony Crawford, 18, Hillsborough Community College
