Single Parent Scholarship Fund Advisory Committee
Receives Two Awards From State Office

Members of the Single Parent Scholarship Fund (SPSF) of Garland County Committee were recently recognized for their fundraising efforts at the Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund (ASPSF) Leadership Conference in Little Rock. Ruthanne Hill, ASPSF State Director, presented awards to Karen Garcia, SPSFGC Chair, and Ann Hair, SPSFGC Vice Chair, in recognition of the committee's 100 percent giving status and for doubling funds raised through their signature event, Style Show for Scholarships, held each year in February.

Garcia applauded the committee for all of their hard work in doubling funds raised at the style show crediting the generosity of sponsors such as Weyerhaeuser, Morris Foundation, Munro Foundation, and Forest Lakes Homes & Condos for making the difference. The SPSF of Garland County seeks to empower single parents to become financially self-sufficient through higher education by providing scholarships to men and women who demonstrate financial need and are enrolled in a post-secondary educational course of study leading to a degree, diploma, or certificate of graduation. Established in 1996, SPSF of Garland County has awarded over $178,000 in scholarships since their inception to 370 recipients.

The SPSF of Garland County scholarships can be used for any expenses related to education including transportation, child care, medical expenses, school supplies, books and fees, and housing. Applications for the SPSFGC 2013 fall scholarships can be completed online at aspsf.org/county_garland.html or at National Park Community College's financial aid office.
