SoWashCo Young Scholars

Nurturing Potential, Sustaining Support

March 2023

Happy March Everyone!

Welcome to the SoWashCo Young Scholar monthly newsletter. This newsletter is a place to learn more about the Young Scholar program and discover information, resources, and opportunities to help your Young Scholar grow.

We are focusing again this month on learning more about the foundational goals of the Young Scholar program.

These goals include supporting and increasing access to resources, affirmation of self, and advocates in and out of school to help students reach their academic potential. Each goal reflects the commitment seen at the beginning of every newsletter: Nurturing Potential, Sustaining Support.

This month's newsletter looks ahead a few months to share resources and opportunities to increase access for your Young Scholar after school has let out for the summer.

It will be here before we know it!


Young Scholar Access, Affirmation, Advocates

Increasing Access Through Summer Opportunities

Believe it or not, even though it still looks very much like winter outside, this is actually the just-right time to start looking into summer opportunities. With this in mind, we'll be taking a look at a variety of activities, camps, and options this summer to help increase access to resources and experiences that nurture your Young Scholar's amazing potential.

About Me


My name is Colleen Redmond, and I am honored to work as Coordinator for SoWashCo Young Scholars.

I'm a mom, a wife, small business owner, avid biker (the pedal kind), book enthusiast, and beekeeper.

I've been lucky enough to teach in South Washington County Schools for over twenty-five years and have had the incredible opportunity to be a part of the lives of so many students and families over the years.

Now, as part of Young Scholars, I have the honor of working with the amazing staff, students, and families throughout SoWashCo to implement and grow the Young Scholars program.

I am so very excited to work with and support you and your Young Scholar. I can't wait to see where the journey takes us!
