The Henry County Community Foundation is seeking applications for its Teens About Serving the County (TASC) Youth Grant.
The TASC Youth Grants Committee meets four times each school year, twice in the fall and twice in the spring. The TASC Committee includes one 8th grader, one freshman, one sophomore, one junior, and one senior from each of the five school districts in Henry County.
Youth Grants Chairman, Rex Peckinpaugh, as well as two Foundation representatives, oversee the process and ensure basic parliamentary procedure is followed.
