Dr. Pogue Supports the Imagine America Scholarship for the 5th Year

Phoenix, Arizona – November 27, 2012 – Dr. Laura Pogue, Educator and Independent Business Woman, has contributed to the 21st Century Workforce Fund of the Imagine America Foundation Scholarship for the fifth consecutive year. 

The Imagine America Foundation awards students scholarships and conducts research to determine ways for career colleges to improve the nation's current skilled-worker shortage. As a Silver Level sponsor since 2008, Dr. Pogue understands the importance of supporting the Imagine America Foundation Scholarships, in order to prepare students to succeed in the workplace in the face of local and global economic change.

"As a life-long learner myself, it is near and dear to my heart to participate in a program that provides scholarships to deserving adult students," stated Dr. Pogue. "My donation is a show of support for adults to return to college for marketable, career skills that lead to additional career options".

According to Robert L. Martin, President of the Imagine America Foundation, "scholarships are awarded to high school seniors, adult learners and military personnel, and are vital to students dedicated to continuing their education. Career college students are more likely to be older than 25, first-generation college students, married and financially independent."
