Model A Youth Scholarship Fund
“Dollars for Scholars”
Many thanks for all of the clubs who have supported the scholarship fund. We the Model A Youth Scholarship Fund could not have done it without you. This year we gave away seven scholarships. All of this was possible because you cared and made the scholarship program a priority. Now the cycle begins again. January has been designated as “Scholarship Month.” The Scholarship Fund is asking for your continued support and is asking each club to have “Dollars for Scholars” in January 2017 (or any month you want.) That means at your monthly meeting everyone in the club gives a dollar to the MAYSF, then your treasurer writes a check for the amount and sends it to the MAYSF.
Let’s raise the bar one more notch by making January “Dollars for Scholars” month and raising dollars to educate our scholars.
