Letter From President Richard Sadow

Dear Friends,

Wow, it's hard to believe it has been 25 years since the establishment of the Friends of 440 Scholarship Fund. That means 25 Scholarship Selection Meetings and nearly 800 scholarships awarded.  Looking back, it is so rewarding to see how many kids we helped to achieve their educational goals and career aspirations.  I hope you will save the date to celebrate this 25th Anniversary milestone with a big bash on October 21st in South Florida.  Stay tuned for information regarding the celebration.

All of us involved in the scholarship fund should be so proud of what has been accomplished. There are just too many individuals who have been instrumental and supportive to name here.  Since inception in 1991, the scholarship fund has awarded approximately $1.6 million in scholarships.  If you have never attended a selection committee meeting, I encourage you to join us in Miami on Saturday, June 3rd.  I promise it will be a memorable day with some exceptional students and you will see exactly how are funds are used.

I thank everyone across the state for their efforts and am sure that both old and new members will allow the scholarship to continue growing.  ALWAYS remember that the main goal of the scholarship fund is to HELP THE KIDS!!!
