The Northside Neighbor published a story on the Park Springs Foundation, a volunteer-run organization comprised of members of Park Springs Life Plan Community, that will award Park Springs employees and children of employees with scholarships of up to $10,500 for the 2021-2022 academic year.
Scholarships provide up to $3,000 toward tuition and up to $500 toward books per semester for three semesters each year — fall, spring and summer — for those working toward academic degrees, skill development or certification at any not-for-profit private or public college, university or technical school. In the 2020-2021 academic year, Park Springs Foundation contributed $66,672 to the education of 24 Park Springs employees and their children.
“We are thrilled to be able to provide this financial support to the employees of Park Springs and their children so that they can further their education and fulfill their dreams,” president of the Park Springs Foundation Katrina Shoemaker said. “The employees at Park Springs are our second family and we are grateful for the way they go over and above for us each day. Providing scholarships for them and their families is our way of showing our appreciation in a way that is meaningful.”
