There are many bright and hard-working students who will graduate high school with exceptional grades but will not have the opportunity to attend college due to a lack of financial resources. Though many universities offer grants and financial aid, the high cost of tuition is often only partially covered by these programs. This means that many deserving students may be forced to enter the workforce before ever having the opportunity to earn a degree.
Thankfully there are many scholarships that are made available to these students through community fundraising. These students have a unique set of skills that may enable them to study to become doctors, lawyers, engineers or foreign language translators who work for All Language Alliance, Inc. Regardless of the choices they make with regard to their studies, these fundraising efforts are a wonderful example of community members working together to ensure that higher education is available to these outstanding students.
Madera has held many fundraisers for this purpose, and one recent event allowed patrons to sample various types of wine and beer that had been made locally. These events not only help to raise money for important issues, but they also allow community bonds to be strengthened in a significant way.
