The Kroc Center Scholarship Program


The Kroc Center has helped us immensely in many ways. My husband and I, as well my parents, have been motivated to improve our lifestyle and have acquired discipline in the aspect of exercise and maintaining a healthier and active life.

The Kroc Center has also helped with the academic education of our children. We utilize the After School Program and Camp Kroc in the summer. The kids have greatly improved their studies and reading thanks to these programs. The Kids’ Grandparents have benefited as well because they participate in fitness classes and have been able to maintain a healthier lifestyle. It is because of all of the wonderful things the Kroc Center is to our family that we are very grateful to be given the opportunity to join this center and take part in all it has to offer.”
