ABOUT THE HICKS PREP CLUB

The Hicks Prep Club is an enrichment program for students (grades 7-12), who reside in one of the 22 properties owned and managed by the Jacksonville Housing Authority, Section 8, and HabiJax homes.  The Prep Club utilizes monthly meetings, book clubs, essay contests, test prep, and other cultural enrichment activities to assist students in reaching their full academic potential. This program also offers a financial incentive that rewards students for their hard work and academic achievements for going to school. The ultimate goal is help students obtain a Hicks Scholarship to the University of North Florida.   This scholarship provides students with tuition, room and board, and books at no expense for a four year period if they meet the criteria to this prestigious university.

The Program is generously funded by David and Ann Hicks.
