Jefferson Dollars for Scholars has awarded scholarships to students in Jefferson Parish, LA since 1993. After Hurricane Katrina, the affiliate sought to meet the needs of their scholarship recipients in an additional way by providing refurbished laptops and has been doing so ever since. Jefferson Dollars for Scholars provides over 100 refurbished laptops annually to its award recipients. Laptops for Scholars is sponsored by Cox Communications, and Millie Baudier, our Board Member and Cox Community Specialist, presented the laptops.
