Head Start Alumni Scholarship Recipients

Community Services for Children is proud to announce this years’ recipients of the 2nd Head Start Alumni Scholarship. This scholarship was designed to award graduating seniors who are pursuing higher education and previously participated in a Head Start program. According to the National Head Start Association (NHSA), children who participated in Head Start have continued success in the following areas: vocabulary, cognitive skills, parent involvement, higher classroom quality, self-control, and self-esteem. All of these traits ultimately lead to improved high school graduation rates, college enrollment and completion. CSC is excited to be a part of these students’ hard work and their journey as they embark on this next chapter in their lives.
