Golden Heart Award Presented to General Colin Powell
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell was honored with the Project H.O.M.E. 2011 Golden Heart Award at a special breakfast on May 20. Funds raised from the breakfast are going toward the newly established Alma and Colin Powell Education Fund at the Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs.
This fund will help provide scholarship opportunities and college access support for students to move forward with their post-secondary education, as well as to make sure they are able to remain in post-secondary programs.
Currently there are 22 students from the Project H.O.M.E. community who are in college, with 10 recent graduates enrolling this fall.
