The Hillsborough Education Foundation is honored to announce that 78 Hillsborough County public school students will graduate with Take Stock in Children college scholarships this month.
Through the Foundation's partnership with Take Stock in Children, the organization is leading the way in Hillsborough County in helping our low-income, at-risk students graduate high school, fulfill their dreams of a college education and enter the workforce with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful.
The graduates were honored during a Scholar Celebration sponsored by Suncoast Credit Union on May 9 at Middleton High School.
Additionally, 104 new students were welcomed into the program.
