Scholarships Available for Community-Minded Students
Calling all students – the Community Service Scholarship is a great way to get help paying for college. Every spring, two graduating seniors from the Four Valleys area (Girdwood, Bird, Indian and Portage) are granted $1,000 each to assist with the cost of higher education.
These scholarships are awarded to students who best demonstrate a history of making their community a better place. Whether you’re in high school, middle, or grade school – it’s never too late or too early to look for volunteer opportunities. Not only does it feel good to make a difference, you may be a recipient of the Community Service Scholarship.
Are you looking for ways to volunteer? Here are some ideas:
• FVCS Nordic Ski Club – Have fun outdoors and assist kids in grades 1–6 learn to ski. Monday afternoons through Mar. 4. Contact Four Valleys Community School: 742-5317
• Alyeska Snow Classic – Help sell tickets to this important fundraiser for Four Valleys Community School. Ticket sales take place in March at local businesses. Contact Four Valleys Community School: 742-5317
• Parks & Recreation – This summer, volunteers are needed to assist trail crews with building and repairing local trails as well as general maintenance for the skate park, tennis courts and playground. Contact Kyle Kelley: KelleyKT@muni.org.
