explore ways we could continue to work together to support the educational aspirations of Florida’s
economically disadvantaged and displaced students,” said Kim Dyson, president and CEO of AAA
Scholarship Foundation. “We listened to their concerns and their strong interest in making sure that
parents have the opportunity and information they need to make informed choices about the
educational-settings that best fit their children’s learning needs. One way we can do that is by creating
a roadmap to help parents navigate the process of selecting and applying to schools.”

in effect for enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year, paving the way for Fifth Third’s continued
participation in the program.

Program to help low-income and displaced students gain access to educational options,” Dyson said.
