CFI awards 2021 scholarships


This year marks the 21st year that the Center for Independence has awarded scholarships to assist children of current full-time employees in obtaining post-secondary education.  The program was implemented in 2001 to provide a means for employees to work cooperatively to meet the increasing costs associated with post-secondary education.
