“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest,” said Benjamin Franklin. We, too, believe learning is absolutely one of the best investments we can make, especially in the minds and lives of the young people around us.
We’re currently in the midst of preparing for our annual Back To School celebration and school supply giveaway. And soon, we will be gearing up our Reading Club with neighborhood kids. We love watching them blossom and flourish as they grow more curious about the world and dive into knowledge.
We are especially proud of Laura Cortes, who will be attending Eastern University this fall as the newest Simple Way Scholar!
Laura says she chose Eastern University because it’s a great opportunity to continue her education while also growing in her faith. She plans to major in Accounting and Finance so she can one day become an accountant and help others.
“I am most excited about beginning new friendships and being able to start on my career,” Laura says. But she does admit she’s nervous about being on her own on campus, which will be a brand new experience.
We’re thrilled to send Laura off to Eastern University. And we’re grateful for your ongoing donations, which support our scholarship program, our reading club, and our Back To School drive. Together, we are investing in knowledge!
