The Highland Center was recently awarded two grants from the Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge to support its youth programs and community park project. The Center was especially honored to be selected this year by the Youth Philanthropy Council (YPC) as one of six regional grant recipients. The YPC is made up of high school students from Staunton, Waynesboro, Augusta County and Highland County who operate a grant-making board of the Community Foundation. Their grant will help the Center complete the first phase of the Community Park in Monterey, with continued clearing and trail construction to begin early this summer. Thank you to the outstanding students who make up the Youth Philanthropy Council and to everyone involved at the Community Foundation!
