WHO WE SERVE

Single Parent Scholarships (SPSF) are given to low-income single parents who are pursuing post-secondary education in preparation for skilled employment. Scholarship Funds are administered by affiliate organizations and volunteers in each county of Arkansas. Eligibility criteria and application requirements vary by county. To apply for a scholarship or to get involved, contact the affiliate SPSF serving the county you live in.

APRIL VOLUNTEERS OF THE MONTH

Pete & Marj Metzger, SPSF of Benton County

Pete & Marj Metzger have volunteered and supported Single Parent Scholarship Funds in Arkansas since 2000, after Pete’s retirement from Walmart. Their wealth of experience and interest in helping people improve their lives make them an ideal match. They first began volunteering with the SPSF of Benton County on a variety of committees and councils, as well as the Board of Directors. They helped interview students, molded policies and procedures, served as sounding boards, and promoted the scholarship program by recruiting new volunteers and scholarship applicants. In 2006 their same commitment and dedication spread to the statewide effort when Pete accepted a nomination on the ASPSF Board of Directors. He served as Vice President in 2007-2008 and Chair in 2009-2010. The Metzgers continue to volunteer wherever needed – such as at family and community activities, award programs, and luncheons – always encouraging students and staff, with a warm and welcoming smile and sincere interest in what’s going on. They are instrumental in the success of the Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Benton County. Thanks, Pete & Marj – you’re a delight to be around, and we appreciate and value your contributions to our success.

THANK YOU!
