To the editor:
How fortunate the residents of Oldham County are to live in a community where businesses, organizations and residents generously give financial support to their future community leaders. Even during times of financial uncertainty, Oldham County has kept its sights on the future by offering scholarships to high school graduates who hope to attend college or seek advanced technical training.
Seven additional businesses and organizations have joined the 36 sponsors who currently offer scholarships through Oldham County’s Dollars for Scholars, a non-profit scholarship organization affiliated with the nationally recognized student-aid organization, Scholarship America. These new sponsors add nine scholarships to the 53 already awarded through Oldham County Dollars for Scholars by local supporters.
I encourage all graduating seniors who reside in Oldham County to take advantage of the 62 scholarships offered through OCDFS this year. Students may apply for multiple scholarships by completing one online application. The application will be posted at www.ocdfs.org on Feb. 1. All completed applications must be postmarked by March 1.
Although Oldham County is a growing community, it’s comforting to know that our community continues to maintain ties with our youth, encouraging them to pursue their educational dreams and publicly recognizing their academic achievements, school involvement and volunteerism during their high school years.
Our businesses and community leaders know that we need to invest in the future, our youth, in order to keep Oldham County the jewel of Kentucky that it is.
Pam Brown, OCDFS president
