The Gerald A. Ferguson Student Scholarship Criteria Overview
The Mainstreet Community Scholarship Applications are now available! The Gerald A. Ferguson Student Scholarship Program was established in order to inspire Mainstreet Community youth to excel academically and take an active role in making their neighborhood a better place through community service and/or volunteerism. This year, one scholarship for $1,500.00 will be offered to a high school senior living in the Mainstreet Community Subdivision. The application deadline is Wednesday, March 23, 2016 by 5:00 p.m. Applications must be returned to the Mainstreet Community Clubhouse administrative office directly. Late and/or incomplete applications will not be accepted! A certificate will also be awarded to the applicant who wins the scholarship at the Honor’s Day Program during the week of April 25, 2016.
The scholarship funds will be disbursed to the successful candidate’s college once the recipient has submitted verifiable proof of enrollment in a two-year or four-year post-secondary institution for summer, fall or winter semester of 2016. Proof of enrollment must be provided to the Scholarship Committee members or their assigned designee before the student’s first semester of enrollment begins, but no later than Wednesday, May 25, 2016.

WHAT: Mainstreet Community Services Association, ForestersTM and organizers from KaBOOM!, hosted a Build Day at the Mainstreet Community Pavilion on Saturday, May 5, 2012. Previously, children who live in Mainstreet and the surrounding communities put crayon to paper and drew their dream playgrounds, which ultimately became a reality. Elements from the children’s drawings were incorporated into the final design for the new community playground and built on May 5, 2012, at the Mainstreet Pavilion. Design Day, held in early March, was also the first meeting of the playground planning committee that worked along with KaBOOM! Project Manager, Danielle Trezek, Foresters liaison, Jessica Heddish, and Community Association Manager/Co-Project Manager, Nadine Rivers-Johnson, for the next eight weeks to plan and prepare for the construction of the new playground.
The new playground will provide more than 1,800 children and their families in the Stone Mountain community with a safe place to play. Playgrounds provide an opportunity for families to spend quality time together and get to know other families in their community. Currently, the children living in the housing community did not have adequate playground equipment to serve the area.
