About the Horne & Moon Scholarship Fund
Through the Horne & Moon Scholarship Fund, we’ve raised over $250,000 for adult education in Manatee County… we’ve awarded scholarships for adults needing to go to Manatee Technical College to learn a new trade (Police Academy, Air Conditioning, Plumbing, Digital Design, Culinary to name a few) or an online Excel Class to get a promotion/raise in their existing job.
There are numerous scholarships for graduating High Schoolers, but not for adults needing to go back to school to complete their education after quitting to start their careers for whatever reason. We want to be able to help them get back in classrooms… Our scholarships are available for Manatee Technical College, USF Sarasota-Manatee and State College of Florida.
We’re proud of the people that have used these funds to better themselves and to help them advance in their careers. Most of the money for the scholarship fund is generated through the Horne & Moon Social. We’ll be hosting our 4th Annual Social in October… more details later, but Save the Date for October 21st, 2017.
Amanda and I are so happy to be able to put this fun event on with Stewart, Trudy and Stewart Moon, Jr. They make it a blast… OK, Lisa makes it easy, The Moons make it a blast.
