While Appalachian Connection was founded in 2015 and awarded its inaugural scholarship in April 2016, our website has been non-existent. But that’s about to change. Today we are pleased to announce the launch of AppalachianConnection.org.
Better late than never, right?
We are very excited to finally have a website to help spread the word about our mission to send bright, aspiring Appalachian high school students to college. We would like to send out a big thank you to the Appalachian Ministry Network, who generously gifted us the domain name appalachianconnection.org. We would also like to thank you for visiting and encourage you to come back often. Here are a few ways we plan to use our website.
- The website will be the portal for all things about the Scholarship and we will introduce the ability to apply online when the time comes.
- We plan to have annual events to help us raise money and, just as importantly, have FUN in the community. Check out our Events section to find out what’s coming up.
- Our past scholarship recipients will be checking in via Blog posts to let us know how their studies are progressing and what they are up to.
- Our Donors section will do features on certain donors from time, so that the community knows who is supporting us and why.
- We plan to keep an active Blog, that will feature stories and links to stories we think are important and show our region in a positive light.
