Providing community and educational support for Woodruff County, the Arkansas Department of Human Services presented the Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund with a donation to help fund summer scholarships for single parent applicants residing in Woodruff County.

County Administrator Andrea Compton presented the check to Program Manager Alodia Hankins and had this to say about the program: “The Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship fund works to help single parents achieve their educational goals and give back to the communities. Supporting organizations that help build communities like Augusta, McCrory and others here in Woodruff County is one of the many commitments that the Arkansas Department of Human Services has.”

The ASPSF for Woodruff County is supported by United Way, Zeta Phi Beta Chapter of Augusta, Entergy, ADHE, and private donations from local business.

For 30 years, Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund has worked to create stronger, more educated, and more self-sufficient families. ASPSF opens doors for low-income single parents, helping them pursue education, secure employment and transform the future for their families. With the help of volunteers and community support, ASPSF creates multigenerational change, transforming lives for both single parents and their children.
