At this week's meeting we will vote on the Education Task Force proposal to allocate $27,000 to scholarships for pre-kindergarten classes from the club Foundation.
Hundreds of children in Southern Chester County live in families that cannot afford the average $10,000 per year it costs for a pre-kindergarten program. They live on less than $25,750 per year. The scholarships will be granted for students to attend specific pre-kindergarten programs that have been highly rated by the state authorities. 
Additional funds will be sought from other Rotary clubs, private foundations, businesses and other sources. Therefore we anticipate there is a strong chance we will not have to spend the entire commitment for the scholarships.
