Students from Wakefield community receive support from Lapan College Club

The Lapan Memorial Sunshine Foundation received a $87,500 Service Learning Grant from the State Farm Foundation to support the Lapan College Club.

"The Lapan College Club Program will provide expanded opportunities for more students of the Wakefield community to receive college preparatory services, mentoring and service-learning experiences that will help make them eligible for scholarships and admission to high-quality college programs," said Bill De La
Rosa, the Youth Advisory Board's West Central representative.

This program benefits students and parents from the Hollinger K-8, CE Rose Pre-K-8 and Pueblo High School. Community members, students, parents and TUSD leaders attended the presentation of the oversized check at a celebration on October 28 at the Lapan Soccer complex at the Wakefield Community Center.
