Important Message from The Scholars Program:!
As we have shared with many of you via email, The Scholars Program will not be offering a 2014 program honoring scholars. We are sad that after honoring 120,000 Scholars over the past 16 years that we will not be doing so this year.

Due to various other business needs, we could not devote the time this year to run the program. We attempted to find a buyer to purchase the business and indeed found one which had us excited that this tradition could continue. When the buyer reconsidered at the last minute, it did not leave us time to find another buyer in time to launch the program for 2014.

Since the start of the year, we have continued to respond to emails, fill incoming orders and answer the phones. Now, as May concludes, this will stop. Our phone lines have been shut off. We will continue to fill orders for past Scholars who order online for an unknown amount of time before we shut off our ordering system.

All orders that have been placed have been filled.

If you are interested in purchasing the business, you may contact us via email at southcambridge(at)yahoo.com. (Replace the (at) with @). Please place in the subject line "Purchase of the Scholars Program" so we can easily identify that this is not SPAM or junk mail. Should a buyer emerge we hope that 2015 might again see a return of The Scholars Program.

Most importantly, THANK YOU. We appreciate all the support we have received from Principals, Teachers, Parents and Scholars who have already responded to us when hearing of this news. We are honored to hear so many words of support. It has been a joy to honor Scholars for the past 16 years and know that in a small way we have made a difference in young people's lives. Thank you for supporting us! We certainly enjoyed the work we did!
