After the run, students will enjoy a sack lunch in Lincoln Park and then boarded a bus for an afternoon of fun at area attractions such as golf courses, bowling alleys, parks, etc. to learn about the many leisure activities and opportunities that exist in our community.
Harbaugh Williams Education Promise Fund
In attempt to level the academic playing field, help each student reach his full potential, and encourage economic stability and growth in the African-American community, in January of 2006 Dennis Harbaugh and Juanita Williams established the Harbaugh-Williams Education Promise Fund. The Promise Fund will provide incentives to increase the academic performance of African-American students and will provide college scholarship assistance so more minority students will receive higher education degrees and qualify for better paying jobs and meaningful careers.
With the help of the Waterloo School District, a 2nd grade class of African-American boys at the Dr. Walter Cunningham School for Excellence has been choosen. If these students attend class, complete their homework, do will in middle school, take challenging high school courses, graduate in good standing from high school, and apply for the scholarship, the Promise Fund will pay for two years of each student’s college tuition costs (at an amount equal to Iowa’s state universities).
