2014 Take Stock in Children Scholarship Students Signed 

Eleven Columbia High and four Fort White High School students were signed into the Take Stock in Children program on September 4 th & 5th. 
The Columbia County School District and Florida Gateway College partner to promote The Take Stock in Children program, an extraordinary program for improving the lives of
deserving children in Columbia County. Take Stock provides an opportunity for the students to EARN a two prepaid tuition scholarship. The Two-year scholarships are for Florida Gateway College. Students sign an agreement to stay drug and crime free, make good grades and stay out of trouble. Take Stock also gives caring citizens the chance to contribute to a local child's scholarship fund and/or serve as a mentor. Currently, 190 children have been awarded scholarships. 
Fifty-five (55) of these students are attending Columbia High and Fort White High Schools. 
There are forty-eight (48) students presently attending Florida Gateway College. Seventy (70) students have now graduated from FGC.

Fort White Elementary kicked off this year’s Accelerated Reader theme, Super Readers Save the Day.
