The Change Makers: Hart County Scholarship Alliance

Hart County Education Enthusiasts Help Give Extra Credit

hart-scholarship-allianceThe Hart County Scholarship Alliance (HCSA) is intent on assisting Hart County High School students earn college credits while still in high school by offering scholarships to students taking dual credit classes.

Over the past two years, Hart County volunteers raised $33,742 for dual credit classes which has helped 75 Hart County Students complete 262 college classes.

HCSA is a group of community leaders led by former Hart County High School teacher Steve Kistler. Steve came to CKCF a couple of years ago wanting advice and guidance for an idea of starting a scholarship fund for Hart County Students. His vision is now becoming a reality as HCSA has successfully engaged others to help raise the money for dual credit tuition assistance.

Dual credit classes offer students both high school and college credits while they are still in high school saving Hart County families a significant amount of money. Even with these savings, HCSA learned the cost of these dual credit classes were still out of reach for some students.

Dual Credit courses can vary in price but typically run from $150 – $210 per class. The same class at a state university would cost over $1,000. These credits are widely accepted by Kentucky’s state universities and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.

Since Hart County Scholarship Alliance is partnering with CKCF, gifts are 100% tax deductible. And thanks to a contribution of Fowler Durham, CPA to cover administration costs, 100% of gifts to HCSA’s Dual Credit Scholarship program will be awarded to the students.
