We know that today’s teenagers are tomorrow’s leaders.
We’ve created two programs dedicated to fostering youth interest in public affairs.
The Margo Fischer Young Tiger Program
The Margo Fischer Young Tiger Program was created to encourage youth to take interest in public affairs. During the school year, we invite high school and home-schooled juniors and seniors (and a teacher-chaperone) as well as Political Science students from local colleges to be our guests for lunch.
The cost of Young Tigers’ attendance is subsidized by individual contributions from our members throughout the year.
While guests may attend the luncheon with a member, the right to ask questions of a speaker is a privilege of the membership alone. We extend full member privileges to these “Young Tigers,” and some have even walked away with the Fang & Claw Award.
We would like to extend an invitation to you and your students to attend one of our upcoming meetings. Seats will be offered on a rotating basis. Please contact us for more information.
Please sponsor the Margo Fischer Young Tiger Program today.
The Dorothy Walker Ruggles
The club gives annual scholarships to graduating high school seniors through the Pinellas County Education Foundation. The scholarship winners are invited to be our guests for lunch at an early summer meeting.
Members contribute directly to the Scholarship fund when they renew their annual membership dues.
