Annual Locally Grown Scholarship Breakfast

Each fall, SSP donors and friends are invited to the Locally Grown Scholarship Breakfast. The event gathers the SSP community to hear inspiring messages, recognize SSP graduates now attending college, and receive a warm thank you for believing in these tenacious students. It is a heart-warming affirmation of the power of education to change lives, often two generations at a time! Bring a friend and enjoy this annual community celebration!
