We currently have 16 former Paul’s Place students enrolled in college and a high school graduate enrolled in a vocational program. We recently established and funded a Paul’s Place Scholarship to provide support to current and future college students. We have one fifth grade student on full scholarship at Gulf Stream School. We have two students attending St. Joseph’s Episcopal School on partial scholarships. We have numerous honor roll recipients, student safety patrols, and citizenship awards.
Paul’s Place Scholarship Fund
We are proud to announce that the Paul’s Place Scholarship Fund has awarded college scholarships to three graduates of our program. Louvertta Alexis, who is enrolled at Palm Beach State College and is pursuing a degree in Nursing. Louvertta is the oldest of 4 children, all of whom attended Paul’s Place. She joined the program as a third grader and graduated from Atlantic
Community High School in May of 2014. The next recipient, Kumberly Pierre-Louis, is also enrolled in Palm Beach State College and is pursuing a degree in Nursing. Kumberly is the o
ldest of 4 children, 2 of whom currently attend Paul’s Place. The third recipient, Kenisha Michel, is enrolled at Palm Beach State College and is pursuing a degree in nursing. In the most recent semester, Spring 2016, Kenisha worked incredibly hard and her GPA earned her a spot on the Dean’s List. We are so proud of all our Paul’s Place graduates and will continue to support them throughout their academic careers.
Kenisha Michel was the recipient of a Macbook Air, donated by Saint Andrew’s School in Boca Raton, FL. Kenisha is a sophomore at Palm Beach State College and is hoping to enter the nursing program once she has completed her Associates Degree. Kenisha has shown a great deal of hard work and dedication to her academic career. This past semester, her grade point average earned her a spot on the Dean’s List. We are so proud of Kenisha and all of her accomplishments! Thank you to Saint Andrew’s for your generous support to our students!
With our Scholarship Fund, we are also able to support three of our students in private schools. This year we have one student attending Gulf Stream School and two students attending St. Joseph’s Episcopal School. We are so thrilled to be able to provide these students with such great opportunities. Ruxane, our fifth grade student at Gulf Stream School, has been selected to be a part of the Orff Ensemble. She will perform in Tampa, Florida among the top music students in the state of Florida.
Take Stock In Children
Louvernson Alexis graduated from Atlantic Community High School in May of 2016. He was awarded a full college scholarship from Take Stock In Children, a program that he has been involved with since 7th Grade. Louvernson is currently attending Palm Beach State College to earn his A.A. degree and plans to transfer elsewhere to finish his B.A. degree. Lourvernson is planning to pursue a degree in Architecture.

We are so excited about our new playground equipment thanks to the generosity of our donors! We were able to install an age appropriate climbing structure right next to our cottage as well as place new equipment in the playground of St. Paul’s Day School.
