Take Stock in Children
October 6, 2009

Take Stock in Children (Santa Rosa County, Florida) is beneficial in so many ways. This organization provides scholarships to financially needy children. Their accompanying mentor program gives one-on-one time to these worthy students, giving support and guidance as they go through the critical teen years. I feel privileged to be a part of this process. This is my 3rd year to mentor a high school student who is eligible for a paid-in-full college scholarship if she maintains her grade point average. She is now a junior and we started our relationship her freshman year. During this time, we have become very close. I am so proud of my mentee and tell her so frequently. If it weren't for this program, this bright sweet girl would never have a chance to go to college due to her family's financial circumstances. I look forward to attending her college graduation and see her become a contributing member to society.
