Clermont Woman’s Club president, Sylvia Barto, presented a check to Carmen Cullen-Batt, executive director of the Education Foundation, in support of Take Stock In Children. The check was presented at the annual Lake/Sumter TSIC Corporate Spelling Bee fund-raising event at Lake Receptions, Mt. Dora. Take Stock in Children was established in 1995 as a non-profit organization in Florida that provides a unique opportunity for deserving low-income youth/students, many from minority families, to escape the cycle of poverty through education. They offer students college scholarships, caring volunteer mentors and hope for a better life. The comprehensive services start in middle school, continue through high school and include their transition into college. Ollie Emory and Sylvia Barto, both members of Clermont Woman’s Club, are mentors.
