Take Stock in Children of Lake and Sumter Counties has received $5,000 from Insight Credit Union to provide a two-year Florida pre-paid scholarship to an eligible student in the community.
Credit unions were founded on the philosophy of “people helping people” and for over 75 years, Insight Credit Union has been committed to serving those in need in the communities where we live and work.
Take Stock in Children, a program of the Educational Foundation of Lake County, identifies financially at-risk students in the eighth grade, provides them with a mentor and an advocate and then rewards them at high school graduation with a college tuition scholarship.
Local money raised for scholarships is matched through the Florida Prepaid Foundation, thus doubling the impact on the community.
