FREMONT-“H&S will be 35 years old come 2018 (1983-2018). Our Wealth Management and IT divisions will each be 20 years old (1998-2018), for a total of 75 years,” said Dan Slate, Co-Founder of H&S Companies. “Let’s celebrate by raising $75,000 for education!”
Dan Slate and Jack Hendon have invited their employees across all offices, and would like to extend the invitation to friends and clients as well, to participate in the Newaygo Promise Zone program. Dan and Jack have pledged to match up to $15,000, and H&S will match up to $10,000 for every dollar donated to the Promise Zone, up to a total of $25,000. The Fremont Area Community Foundation will provide an additional match of $.50 for every dollar they raise. H&S is confident they can raise a total of $75,000, and by joining them in the cause, your donation will triple, given these matches.
Promise Zone scholarships are available to students who graduate from Newaygo County high schools or home schools and live in the Newaygo County Regional Educational Service Agency area. Scholarships will cover tuition and fees for two-year awards at Baker College and Muskegon Community College up to the value of the prevailing tuition rate of MCC.
In its first year, 103 students used Promise Zone scholarships to start college at MCC and Baker.
“At H&S we firmly believe in education and giving back to the community. We are proud to support the Promise Zone and increased educational opportunities for all local students,” said Jack Hendon, Co-Founder of H&S Companies. “I have no doubt this is one of the most important projects this county has been involved in, and one that will positively impact our youth’s lives and our community forever.”
