Board comments:
Lisa had several suggestions. First create a flier to promote our available scholarships to HS journalism classes. Next become listed on Fast Web, a search engine for scholarships. She will research what it takes to be listed. 3rd, Mid First Bank has a collect change program where they match what non-profits collect. Last, have a team for Walk for the Cure next year.
