Student Highlight

"Being named the 2015 recipient of the Sharon L. Morse Scholarship, from the Buffalo Scholarship Foundation, is truly the highest honor I have ever received. Sharon Morse was an amazing woman and loved by so many people. She valued education, loved music and strived to share both with everyone. With this scholarship money, I will be able to pursue my own education at the University of North Florida, where I plan to become a teacher, study music and someday return to The Villages Charter School, to share these passions with more children. Many thanks to the Morse family for honoring their mother/grandmother with this scholarship, The Villages Charter School for preparing me for college and the Buffalo Scholarship Foundation for their immense generosity."
