Community Foundation champions educationPublished 10:00am Friday, June 7, 2013
Polk County High School student Halle Kuettel will leave for Switzerland this summer, studying abroad for a full year at a Swiss public high school while living with a host family. An $8,000 merit scholarship from AFS endowment funds at the Community Foundation helped her on her way. Students are encouraged to apply to study abroad through the local AFS Polk County chapter.
Eight local organizations have received Student Intern Program grants to hire high school students during their summer vacations. The organizations are listed on the Foundation’s website, www.polkccf.org.
