TAG (Teens Aiding Growth)Team
Purpose: To award scholarships to graduating students in Allegan County.
Since 1994 the TAG (Teens Aiding Growth) Team has played a critical role in supporting youth in Allegan County. Team members represent 9 high schools throughout the county and are committed to learning about and promoting philanthropy (“the giving of one’s time, treasures and talents”), performing county-wide community service, and reviewing and awarding grants to non-profits for programs that serve youth.
The first TAG Team scholarship was given out in 2006 to an Allegan County graduate. The funds for this scholarship were made possible by the passion and hard work of the members of the TAG Team. They are committed to supporting their peers in their pursuit of a higher education. Graduating seniors of an Allegan County high schools are eligible to apply for the annual $1,000 scholarship. (TAG members, past or present, are not eligible.) The scholarship must be used to defray college costs (tuition, books, and room/board) in the student’s freshman year. This scholarship is not renewable.
Applicants must be an Allegan County high school senior
Applicants must intend to be a full-time college/trade school student
The ideal TAG Team scholarship winner will be one who has put forth effort academically,
has shown leadership ability, and makes community service a priority.
Donations to the TAG Team Scholarship Fund will be used to award scholarships for student leaders throughout Allegan County.
