Scholarship Fund

The Ken Woodruff Scholarship Fund



The Ken Woodruff Scholarship Fund commemorates a lifelong commitment to helping people.  Ken was the founder of Portage Adult Education.  It was his pioneering spirit that created the network of adult education services that exist today in Northwest Indiana.  His belief that it was “never too late” inspired teachers and students to reach for the very best in themselves.  That belief was the spirit behind the motto, “You Can”.  That kind of belief in people is contagious.   It changes lives. 

Ken left behind a legacy comprised of thousands of people whose lives were improved because of his belief and tireless dedication to adult education.  As Neighbors’ we are committed to continuing his legacy.  The Ken Woodruff Scholarship Fund honors his life’s work by providing assistance to people who could not otherwise afford the fees associated with the GED test.   We believe in lending that helping hand.  Sometimes a small gesture is all it takes to make a difference.

Donating to the fund is simple.  Just send a check or money order to Neighbors' Educational Opportunities.
