Vernon Community School Corporation is encouraging all kindergarten parents/guardians to sign their child up for the Hancock County Promise and receive free money from community partners towards your child's education post high school. Through the Hancock County Promise, all kindergarteners in Hancock County can receive a free CollegeChoice 529 Direct Savings accounts, thanks to community partners: Hancock Health, Greenfield Banking Company, NineStar Connect, the EMS Group, Tyner Pond and Meijer in McCordsville.
