The HALO Learning Center is excited to announce two scholarship winners for 2015! Through HALO-KC's partnership with the Kansas City Securities Association, local HALO youth are eligible to apply for their Education Fund scholarship in the spring of each year. The scholarship is applicable for youth from seven local organizations, including the HALO Learning Center. Recipients are decided by a number of factors, including academic merit, financial need, community involvement and citizenship.
Out of over 80 applicants this year, and 10 recipients, HALO had two girls, Jameshia and Shelzaray, win the scholarship! Jameshia is interested in attending Lincoln University this fall with an interest in ROTC and Aviation. Shelzaray will be attending Kansas City Kansas Community College with a focus on Early Childhood Development. Both girls have been involved in the HALO Learning Center for over two years, and were ecstatic to receive this $18,000 scholarship.
One of HALO's previous scholarship recipients, Tiana, was also invited to attend the scholarship awards banquet due to her numerous achievements in her first year of college this past year. HALO Center staff were thrilled to have three of their scholarship winners together for a magical evening.
Through the generosity of KCSA, these HALO youth will be able to pursue their dreams for the future! Thank you to everyone at KCSA who made this possible.
