Congratulations to the winners of our 2018 Jean McKee Resident Scholarship competition:
The scholarship program was established in 2000 in memory of Jean McKee, an attorney and longtime champion of education who served on the Housing Commission Board from 1985 until her death in 1999. Each year scholarships are awarded to GRHC residents who are graduating high school seniors or who currently attend or plan to attend college or vocational school as full-time students. Winners must maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA and full-time enrollment to receive $500 annually for up to four years; the total potential scholarship award is $2,000.
The Jean McKee Resident Scholarship is funded through private donations. Application materials for the 2019 academic year will be available in February.
Campau Commons and Creston Plaza are offering children ages 18 and under free weekday lunches through the USDA-funded “Meet Up and Eat Up” Summer Food Service Program.
The Campau Commons Apartments Community Center, 821 South Division Avenue, and the Creston Plaza Apartments Community Center, 1080 Creston Plaza Drive NE, will provide lunch Monday through Friday, 11:30-12:30 p.m., through August 3. There is no enrollment or registration for this program; children can simply visit during the lunch period to receive a tasty and balanced meal.
