November 9, 2021
SML Good Neighbors had actively been investigating establishing a scholarship program to support our students in pursuing post high school education. Nancy Horton, a longtime volunteer and supporter of SML Good Neighbors, made this possible by pledging $25,000 in matching funds to launch a scholarship program.
SML Good Neighbors is launching a scholarship matching campaign, beginning immediately, in hopes of doubling every dollar donated to the scholarship up to $25,000 by May of 2022. The funds donated to the Nancy Horton Scholarship will be held in an investment account to maximize the impact of funds.
SML Good Neighbors will provide up to two scholarships annually beginning in May of 2022, to two deserving seniors who have participated in our programs. A selection committee will determine which applicants are selected as recipients of the scholarship. The scholarship application will be provided to local high schools as well as available through the SML Good Neighbors’ website this December.
