Working with OCPS!
Exciting news: the Orange County School Board has agreed to work with the Second Chance of Florida Foundation. For those who do not know, the Second Chance of Florida Foundation awards book and tuition scholarships to graduating high school seniors who have succeeded in the face of adversity.
The foundation relies on the central Florida community to identify hardworking students who realistically cannot attend college without financial help. With the communities help, scholarship awards can give students the chance to seek higher education. The Foundation believes every hardworking student deserves a chance at an education, regardless of their background.
The Orange County School Board will be asking high school guidance counselors, coaches, and teachers to identify students who are dominating in the classroom against all odds! Once identified, the guidance counselors, coaches, and teachers will encourage their students to apply for Second Chance of Florida Foundation scholarship awards. Once the foundation receives the applications, it will award scholarships to students who have maintained a GPA above a 3.0, overcome difficult circumstances, and who are involved in their community. The foundation is hopeful that many deserving students will be awarded scholarships and be encouraged to attend college in the 2013-2014 academic year.
The Second Chance of Florida Foundation is ecstatic to be work with the Orange County School Board. The foundation believes the Orange County School Board and employees of the Orange County School district are deeply rooted in their communities. The foundation hopes to utilize these ties to help not only the graduating class of 2013, but subsequent graduating classes. We hope you’re excited about this good news, the Second Chance of Florida Foundation sure is!
