Friends of Barron is pleased to announce the commencement of the 2011-2012 Scholarship Program. We encourage you to go to www.friendsofbarron.blogspot.com to see all the details, but in a nutshell, last years’ program was an unqualified success. We were able to assist 13 students. In the words of the program administrator, Manuel Rodriguez Lopez, “These students have really matured in the past year and they are a fine group of young people. You should be proud of what you have enabled them to become”. And we are very proud of them. Our thanks go to many, many people (see the website) and our hearts go to the youth of Barron who are dedicated to changing their lives. If you would like to assist this fine group of young people and the next group who are eagerly following them in their path, please contact Dale Lyster (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dick McGuire (email@example.com).
