Ten students signed Take Stock in Children Scholarship contracts on Tuesday, May 26, at the Madison County High School Media Center. Their parents joined the students in this honor. By signing a contract, the students made a commitment to maintain a high GPA, have good school attendance, good school behaviors and remain drug and crime free. They have committed to focus on academics, good citizenship, good school attendance and graduation from high school. The reward for their focus after graduation is a Take Stock in Children tuition scholarship. The program will assign them a mentor in the Fall and the Take Stock in Children College Success Coach will provide academic and college readiness guidance. This program is sponsored by the Madison County Foundation for Excellence in Education, Inc. Presently, there are 63 students in the program either at Central School or Madison County High School. 115 students have already graduated with TSIC Scholarships and 14 will graduate on June 5. Awesome, indeed, that we will soon have 129 students from Madison County who are recipients of these scholarships and have been afforded the opportunity to further their education. Students may enroll at a community college, university or vocational school. Many of the TSIC scholars have graduated from a vo-tech school or university and are now in the workforce.
