America’s young people are its most precious resource, which is the reason the Fort Smith Noon Exchange Club invests in the youth of today through its scholarship, mentoring and education programs. FSNE Youth Programs include:
Sponsorship of Girls, Inc. Summer Camps
Every year since 1947, Fort Smith Noon Exchange Club has provided scholarship funds for students to attend Girls, Inc. Summer Camp, a non-profit organization, committed to helping girls become “Strong, Smart, and Bold.” Over the past 70+ years, the Club has contributed more than $350,000 to the scholarship program.
Partners in Education
Supporting local students and educators is a top priority of the Fort Smith Noon Exchange Club. This is accomplished through participation in the Fort Smith Public Schools’ Partners in Education program. FSNE is a long-time Partner in Education with both Beard Elementary School and Ramsey Junior High School, providing financial and volunteer support to both campuses. The Club is a proud recipient of PIE’s prestigious Bud Jackson Teamwork Award, which recognizes outstanding collaborations between schools and its Partners in Education.
