Zonta Club of Ashtabula Area supports Rising Scholars

In February, the Zonta Club of Ashtabula Area, USA, collected new school supplies for students in the Rising Scholars program at Kent State Ashtabula University. The program aims to give first-generation and underrepresented students a pathway to achieve a college degree at no cost to participants. Many beneficiaries were young ladies.

The club invited Cheryle Chiaramonte from the Ashtabula Foundation to come and share information and her passion for this program.

Natalie Huya, the Kent Program Director, spoke about the program at the Ashtabula Area City School Board meeting and thanked the club for their support.
