Connection Center Ribbon Cutting
Pace Community Action Agency, Inc, is expanding our STEM Camp scholarship program to include girls and boys from Daviess, Greene, Knox and Sullivan Counties. In the past we hosted a boys’ program, Boys and Beyond, but due to COVID-19 we are postponing that with the option for boys to receive the STEM Camp scholarships. There are a variety of camps in our area that provide hands-on technology activities for youth. Camp options vary from day to overnight, and the camps do not have to be located in our service delivery. Scholarships are Pace’s way of making sure that financial issues do not stop individuals from attending STEM camps. Interested individuals should identify a camp of interest and complete the STEM Camp application on our website at https://www.pacecaa.org/stem-camps. Financial reimbursement may include the cost of the camp and mileage to and from the camp. Apply as soon as possible as there are a limited number of scholarship payments available. After applications are received, individuals will be notified if they are accepted as a scholarship recipient. Consistent with our mission of improving the community and encouraging self-reliance, these scholarships help children and teens learn skills in STEM related fields. STEM related careers are one of the fastest-growing fields in the job industry with above average pay. According to STEM Occupations: Past, Present, and Future by the US Bureaus of Labor Statistics, the average wage for STEM occupations is $87,570, nearly double the national average wage for non-STEM occupations. Dr. Bertha Proctor, Pace CEO, comments on this program, “These scholarships are a valuable way we can help ensure that all kids have access to a variety of educational experiences. We are excited to be able to offer this program to the community.”

Substitutes Needed
Linton-Stockton Schools is planning on offering an After School Program beginning in August. Our vision is a program open to students in grades K-12. Students would be separated into age appropriate locations. The program would be an extension of the day and be open until 6:00pm. The program would include snacks, home work assistance, an evening meal for those who request, field trips, fitness, arts, STEM and social activities. This program will be funded through CARES Act dollars. In addition, we have the opportunity to enhance and sustain the program through the 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant. This competitive grant requires us to provide evidence for the needs for such a program. We would appreciate parents completing the survey found at the link below so that we can gather your responses and provide the data in our application. Thank you for taking a few minutes to complete the short survey and help LSSC continue to improve and increase the services we offer to our families. Survey Link: https://forms.gle/rrewHkKpfXuRCZ5H7
