There are hundreds of students at Lake Park High School whose families face financial challenges every day. Some of these students qualify to participate in the Free Lunch Program. Others do not, however a parent may have lost a job or be struggling with other financial issues.
The Lake Park Educational Foundation’s Lancer Emergency Support Fund was established to make a difference in our community by providing crucial assistance to our students in need. No student should miss an educational opportunity due to his or her family’s limited funds.
Here are some of the ways which the Foundation assists through the Lancer Emergency Fund:
- ACT Prep Class tuition
- AP Exam Fees
- Class Materials
- Field Trip Expenses
- Complimentary breakfast and lunch tickets
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for funding both a
portion of my AP exams and the ACT prep class. Coming from a low income
background, obstacles have definitely persisted throughout my life in the way
of academic achievements. With my father being laid off I often felt that
I wouldn’t be provided the same opportunities as others. Your generous
assistance has both encouraged me to take greater leaps and given me
reassurance that socio-economic backgrounds do not reflect a person’s capability
of achievement. So with that I thank you so much and hope to one day do
what you are doing by helping those who have ambitions and the persistence to
attain those ambitions. Thank you so much.

Thank you for funding me! I really appreciate it. Five tests were just too much money for my family, but I didn’t want to not take some tests. So thank you for the funding. It means a lot to me and I hope to continue to help other people in need.
