Since 2014, America in Recovery has been awarding $2500 scholarships to at-risk high school students.  The awards are given in two installments.  In order to receive the second half, students must achieve good grades in their first year of community college. The money is sent directly to the community college of the student's choice only after he/she provides information confirming they are registered for classes.  The students are selected for the scholarships by their high school counselors. Only students with a C average are eligible.  For more information on America in Recover and its founder Larry Keast, visit
