Color your way to a college scholarship

ATLANTA -- Coloring is perhaps one of the first activities a child embarks upon in his or her educational journey. It creates a foundation for activity and a lifetime of learning.

This September, coloring can also help create a financial foundation.

One lucky Georgia child will join Kendall Lapinskas of Dunwoody and Taylor Boyd of Covington in winning a college scholarship from the Path2College 529 Plan.

Surprise for the Stark family

Surprise for the Stark family

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- When we told you about the Stark family one week ago, your reaction was to reach out to them.

The story became national news because it put the spotlight on a family that had lived a life of sacrifice, service and loss.

Will and Cheryl Stark had three daughters of their own and then adopted six special needs children because they felt called by God to do it. 

A year and a half ago, Will lost his job and couldn't find another. A few weeks ago, he landed a new job, and he and his wife of 34 years, Cheryl, celebrated by going away to Pigeon Forge for a weekend. 

One hour after they arrived at their cabin, Cheryl had a stroke. She died three days later in the hospital. 

We told you the Starks' story, and Q100 set up a PayPal account for the family, who were featured on Bert's Big Adventure two years ago.

Sending Your Baby To Kindergarten

Sending Your Baby To Kindergarten

 

The school bell will ring soon and many parents will send a child to kindergarten. This is always an emotional time for parents. For some, it will be sending your first born and for others it will be sending the youngest of four. Kindergarten is an important milestone in your child’s life. Your child’s maturity will grow tremendously this year and you’ll get to see a small glimpse of how your hard work over the past 5 years has shaped your child. It wasn’t that long ago that you held your precious baby in your arms for the first time. Where did the time go? Now it’s time to send that little baby off to kindergarten. For most this will be the first full school day, the first  year to ride the school bus, the first year to have homework, and the first year when peer influences begin to play a role.
