I was pleased to see a nice thank you letter in the Mercury today. Courtney Sell was the recipient of a college scholarship from the now defunct Century Club of Pottstown. It is gratifying to see young people who were taught to say please and thank you. Courtney’s letter showed true appreciation.
The loss of service organizations are devastating to the communities they served. Four less college scholarships will be awarded next year because the Century Club is now only a memory. The loss of these scholarships could mean four less Pottstown students attend college next year or place a further burden on the student and their family to find other financial aid.
