Pinellas County Non-Profit Paying Students for Good Grades

FOX13 Tampa Bay recently spotlighted the student successes achieved through Paid for Grades, a local initiative founded by Chargebacks911 CEO Monica Eaton.

WTVT FOX13 is a television station licensed to Tampa, Florida, United States, broadcasting the Fox network to the Tampa Bay area. Owned and operated by the network's Fox Television Stations division, WTVT maintains studios on Kennedy Boulevard on Tampa's west side, and its transmitter is located in Riverview.

Paid for Grades is a revolutionary program designed to incentivize students to reach their potential. Through the program, ninth graders at three schools located in South Pinellas County — Boca Ciega High School, Lakewood High School, and Hollins High School — had the chance to earn cash rewards for improving their academic performance. In the process, students learned that they were capable of achieving more than they might have realized before.

“You have to really put in lots of studying, lots of at home time,” said Jaylon Scurly, a student at the school. “You have to sacrifice.”

Hundreds of students have completed the Paid for Grades program since 2013. And, as the primary financial backers of the program, Chargebacks911 have contributed more than $1.5 million to local students and schools through Paid for Grades.

“If you change the life of one student, that has such an amazing effect, it could change the life of an entire generation,” Monica explained.
