The New Milford Student Loan Fund was established in 1957 by Kenneth Rounds as a Rotary Club project. The purpose of the Loan Fund is to aid students of New Milford Township, New Milford Borough, and Jackson Township with funds for post-high school education. These are the areas that chose to participate when the fund was established. Since that time, they have loaned more than $100,000 to over 100 students. Applications are available through the guidance office at Blue Ridge High School.
The amount of the loans to students who apply and are accepted as recipients depends on the number of applications and the amount of funds available. Some years they have been able to lend each student the maximum of $1,500 per year. Other years they have been able to lend only $500 to each. As they accumulate funds through annual campaigns and repayment of loans, they can assure the maximum to more students. Once an applicant has been accepted, they plan to follow through for up to four years.
Their annual meeting was held on Tuesday, May 25. Three new applications and eight repeat applications were approved for the 2004-05 school year. Approval was given for each student to recent a loan of up to $1,500.
An annual fund drive begins in March each year, but donations can be made at any time. If you would like to support the effort, your donation can be sent to the New Milford Student Loan Fund, c/o Judy Dennis, RR 1 Box 136, New Milford, PA 18834. A donation of $10 or more entitles you to vote at the annual meeting. Next years meeting will occur on Tuesday, May 24, 2005 at the Pratt Memorial Library in New Milford. The general membership meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. New members and their involvement in the organization are welcome.
