Every year, graduates of The Metropolitan Regional Career and Technical Center (The Met Center, a Big Picture Learning School) struggle to finance their college education. The Met Dollars for Scholars Fund seeks to diminish, or eliminate, any unmet need in a student's college financial aid package. I help support these students to fill that gap. Met graduates are out in the world and in their higher education experience at over 200 colleges, universities, vocational schools, technical schools, visual and performing arts schools and alternate programs located in 26 states and two countries. I urge you to show your support by making a charitable donation. www.metcenter.org
