Take Stock BIG Family Dinner

On December 9th 2014, 650 Take Stock in Children mentors, students and family members came together for the 2nd Annual Take Stock Family Dinner hosted at the Morocco Shrine Center. The evening was a chance for parents to meet mentors and for all who support the student to engage in a conversation around post-secondary education.

The Center was filled with 30 college booths featuring programs from Florida State College at Jacksonville and the University of North Florida. The short program featured as emcee, First Coast News Anchor and Take Stock Mentor Heather Crawford. Guest speakers included Dr. Chris Holland, Vice President of Student Services from Florida State College and Jacksonville as well as an interactive program presented by history professor, Steve Piscitelli.

The evening was a huge success and we look forward to next years.
