NORWICH – Norwich Dollars for Scholars has continually hosted fundraisers to help local high school seniors reach their goals of attending college.
This non-pofit, tax exempt program is locally operated, supported and helps students who want to further their education after high school. The program strives to lessen the burden of college loans and help ensure that students learn about the support communities can offer.
The program was established in 2003 and the student chapter began in 2005. The program was originally a network of grassroots, being based on community volunteerism. Working as a community is the program’s ideal advantage.
“If we can encourage kids to have a better understanding of community, it will teach them to appreciate the community,” said Chris Frank of the Norwich City School Board.
