We are excited to once again offer 2 $1,000 scholarships through our Star Savers Education Foundation. The scholarship program was originally created as a way to celebrate our first group of student run branch workers graduating from high school.
Our first student run branch was opened in 2004 at Valley Ranch Elementary. The branch is operated by 4th graders. We now have student run branches at Austin, Mockingbird, Pinkerton, Lee and Valley Ranch Elementary, as well as Pierce Private Day School.
