“We are very proud to make available a large number of college scholarships for graduating seniors and adult students,” said Dan Layman, CEO of the Community Foundation. “As the cost of a college education continues to rise, it becomes increasingly important that hard-working students have access to the support they need to fulfill their dreams and to limit student loans. We have many local donors, each very passionate about education, to thank for these scholarships. We continue to encourage others to follow their example by establishing their own scholarship funds with the Community Foundation.”
