Memories are a powerful thing. A song, a picture, a favorite dessert, or a walk down memory lane with your high school or college year book is all it takes. Close your eyes and you can be instantly transported back to a special time and place, with a desire to turn back time and imagine being a student again! This year Take Stock in Children Nassau celebrates 22 years, the time it takes someone to be born in 1997 to graduate from college.
Take Stock in Children provides scholarships, mentors and hope to more than 150 students each year. With the help of their mentor and College Success Coach 100 percent of our students graduate and 93 percent go on to college and use their four-year tuition scholarship.
Please join us on March 28th at 6:00 PM at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island for an evening of nostalgia including a documentary of TSIC students then and now, music trivia from your high school and college days by John Springer and Rob Taylor, and dinner with a “better than your mom’s apple pie” dessert. Silent and live auction items have been provided by the more than 100 local businesses who support our academically promising low-income students every year.
Reservations can be purchased from www.takestocknassau.org or by calling the office at 904-548-4464.
