The Pilot Scholarship House Foundation has almost reached the goal to provide each of the four houses with a desk for every resident in the DESKS FOR SUCCESS project. There is still opportunity for anyone to contribute to this project. The houses will be closed for the summer for repairs, etc. The GKP house will receive a new sign and bike racks for the bikes they received this year from Bikes for Tykes. Sue and Joan visited the FGCU house with a cake and a pie to ease the stress of finals. Congratulations to the three students; Rachel, Hope and Natalie who are graduating. Three new students will be moving in. We look forward to welcoming them in August.
