College Scholarships The Hammond Foundation provides an annual scholarship program for minority high school students in Loudoun County, Virginia and St. Johns County, Florida. The scholarships are aimed at helping students achieve their full potential by ensuring they have the funds to attend college. Administered by the United Negro College Fund, the scholarships are given to students who: • Are accepted into a college or university • Have demonstrated a strong desire to excel, and • Have a financial need. From the 2003/2004 through 2010/2011 school years, a total of over $140,000 has been awarded to high school seniors. The Foundation hopes to launch similar scholarship programs in other Virginia and Florida counties in the coming school years.

Along with hundreds of our neighbors, we took part in the National Day of Service today at Katie's Coffeehouse in Great Falls, VA today. As a former military serviceman and spouse themselves, our founders-- Verle and Eleanor Hammond-- wrote letters of thanks to active military families who have sacrificed so much over the past decade. The letters will be sent to Blue Star Military Families' Operation Appreciation.

Saturday is the National Day of Service.  How are you planning to serve?
