What is the Connections Program?
In 2013, the Scholarship Committee of the Lake Rabun Foundation established the Connections Program as a means for a Lake Rabun Association individual or family to partner and connect with one of our scholarship recipients. The Connections family is the “face behind the financial gift”, introducing the student to our lake community, as well as a match with common interests such as proposed majors, careers, hobbies, or personalities. The program offers each student a cheerleader and friend to boost confidence and motivation while he or she is in college. These relationships help our students understand that their scholarships are much more than merely a series of checks that are sent to their colleges. Furthermore, the program reinforces that the Lake Rabun community is proud to play a small part in the student’s academic journey.
These Connections are just as meaningful and valuable to our LRA members, as noted in recent comments:
