CLEARWATER – The Pinellas Education Foundation has announced that it has received a $25,000 donation from AT&T for its Take Stock in Children/Doorways Scholarship Program.
The program benefits economically disadvantaged Pinellas County Schools students through college and technical school tuition scholarships. Students also benefit from mentors who advise and guide them and school-based ambassadors who monitor student progress and enhance student learning through enrichment activities.
According to a news release from the Foundation, “AT&T is strongly committed to helping students complete high school and move on to college or the workforce,” said Andrew Hall, Regional Director-External Affairs, AT&T Florida. “We believe every student has the potential to succeed and are pleased to be working with the Pinellas Education Foundation’s Take Stock in Children/Doorways program to expand the number of students who will receive scholarships. We applaud this year’s recipients for how they are embracing the future and for their determination to reach their dreams through education.”
