Information related to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The health and safety of the students, their parents, teachers, and administrators are of our upmost concern, as well as that of our communities, churches, and hospital and healthcare staff which includes the welfare of our board members and committee. All remain a top priority.

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, we’ve asked our board members and committee to notify the Scholarship Committee immediately if they’ve been exposed, so that we do not send them out.

The board members and committee have recommended precautions be taken upon any visits to schools or agencies to provide protection for all concerned. We will continue to work closely with our board members and committee to ensure to maintain a safe, high-quality service to all as the impact of the coronavirus evolves.

The board members and committee have listed resources below so one will understand basic information about coronavirus disease (COVID-19), including its symptoms, complications, how it is transmitted and how to prevent transmission. Stay informed about COVID-19 through reputable sources.
