INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - Looking forward to furthering their education, teen members of the Indian River Habitat for Humanity Prep Club toured three Florida schools in the Tallahassee area earlier this month.

The Prep Club is for high- school age children of Habitat homeowners, and is part of Indian River Habitat's scholarship education program.

Accompanied by Al DeRenzo, scholarship education program supporter and volunteer and Annie Blewett, IRHFH staffer, students Terrell Charles and Cammie Henry enjoyed visiting the campuses of Florida A&M University, Florida State University and Warner University.

Through the scholarship/education program, Habitat provides education-based after-school and summer care, help with homework, access to computers for schoolwork and, for high- school students, assistance in preparing for college, annual campus tours and scholarship support.

In addition to receiving support with college prep, Prep Club members enjoyed fun event and field trips and are required to perform community service activities.

For more information on this program, call (772) 562-9860, Ext. 232.
