Newaygo County Area Promise Zone Receives Support from Newaygo Insurance Agency
The Fundraising Committee of the Newaygo County Area Promise Zone frequently makes visits to groups and businesses seeking support for their Promise Scholars. One recent example of a community business partnering with the Fundraising Committee is Newaygo Insurance Agency.
Holly Moon, Chairperson of the Fundraising Committee, was visiting with Dan Johnson, Newaygo Insurance Agency Owner, in his office when Dan offered to have the Agency’s marketing staff design and produce a banner showing the company's support for local Promise Scholars. Dan has been proudly displaying the banner in front of the office on M-37 in Newaygo and offers “Sponsor-A-Scholar” brochures in the reception area.
"We appreciate the opportunities that the Promise Zone offers to students in our community. We jumped at the chance to support their efforts to promote education, especially for our youth," Dan shared.
In thanking Dan for his generous support, Holly stated, "Our Promise Scholarships and success coaching would not be possible without the generous support of the many individuals and organizations throughout the County."
The Newaygo County community stepped up in 2017 to provide eligible students with the opportunity for a tuition-free, post-secondary education at Muskegon Community College. To date over 300 students have taken advantage of the Promise Scholarship. With this tuition-free option, our students’ dreams of a college education can become a reality.
If you would like Holly or another member of the Promise Zone Board to visit your group or business to share more details, please call 231-924-8888 or email email@example.com.
