Letter: College costs: It takes a village

To the editor:

As a parent, I’ve lost sleep worrying about how we would finance our kids’ college education.  Today, just as I’m preparing to send off fall tuition payments, a generous check arrived in the mail from the Citizens’ Scholarship Foundation of Little Compton.

I’m writing to express my gratefulness and gratitude to the Foundation and its officers – Christine Hudson, Ann Haire, Caroline Wordell, Nancy Eames, Bruce Elwell, Joyce Moson and Dale Sullivan – and everyone who has sent them a contribution or participated in their fund-raising activities.

It takes a village to send a kid to college these days and I’m so grateful that the village I live in is Little Compton.

Thank you –

Judy Melanson
