Hope Kiwanis Club Hears Single Parent Scholarship Fund Program

By Staff, 10/19/21 4:44 PM

The Hope Kiwanis Club heard from Wendy Stotts, Fund Development Manager with the Single Parent Scholarship Fund.  She explained the organization works to provide scholarships to single parent students who are pursuing a better life for their family through post-secondary education or skilled trade certification.  The organization is thirty years old and was formed in Northwest Arkansas.  She noted one in five families in Arkansas is a single parent family.  Stotts noted local volunteers raise county funds and those are the funds that go to the Single Parent Scholarship Recipients. In 2020 the organization awarded $1.4 million dollars in scholarships to 1,687 single parent students in the state of Arkansas.  In 2021, $30,300 will be awarded to 25 students in Hempstead County.

Anyone who would like to learn more or contribute to the scholarships can contact Stotts at 870-277-0956 or email wstotts@aspsf.org.
