We are excited to announce the students who received the Venice Pride, Inc. Youth Scholarship this year.
Venice Pride, Inc. founded this program in 2021 to give back to our community and to support our youth.
This program is an annual scholarship geared to High School graduates from the Suncoast region who demonstrate outstanding academics, contribute to their communities and plan on attending college in the Fall.
Last year, we awarded one scholarship, the Spencer Stephens Award to a Lemon Bay High student, in honor of Spencer Stephens. This year, we are excited to award three youth scholarships from three different High Schools.
These scholarships were made possible from many generous donations received and our Giving Challenge 2022 fundraising efforts. We extend a special thanks to our 2022 Youth Scholarship supporters and donors:
- Community Foundation of Sarasota County
- Giving Challenge Partners (ALSO Youth, Blaze of Hope, Diversity: The Voices of Sarasota, Fabulous Arts Foundation, Modern Marimba, Project Pride SRQ)
- Giving Challenge Supporters
- Margaret Kennedy, Realtor
- Robinson, Gruters and Roberts PA
- Suncoast MCC
- The Patterson Foundation
Also special thanks to Kathy Hanas our 2022 Giving Challenge team champion, Angela Chisolm our Giving Challenge video director and Dawn & Donnie Stephens our presenters of the Spencer Stephens Award to the Lemon Bay High School recipient.
Join us in congratulating William, Zander and Jaylynn. We are very proud of them.
Team at Venice Pride, Inc.
