SoWashCo Young Scholars

Nurturing Potential, Sustaining Support

March 2021

Happy March!

Spring is just around the corner, and warmer weather is hopefully close behind. I don't know about you, but this winter has felt especially long and challenging. A little extra sunlight and warmth will be very welcome.

This month in our newsletter we'll focus on the goal of increasing access for your Young Scholar. 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 spring and summer enrichment opportunities.

With this in mind, we'll be taking a look at a variety of activities, camps, and options to help increase access to resources and experiences that nurture your Young Scholar's amazing potential.

Young Scholars works with students, families and schools to increase...


Even with pandemic restrictions, many groups are still working hard to offer experiences that are both fun and safe. Below are several options worth exploring when looking to increase access to resources and opportunities for your Young Scholar this spring and summer.

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 833 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!
