Since its inception, the Scholarship Foundation has proudly awarded $2,641,867 to 2,617 local students. Each scholarship is made available by the generosity of many individuals and local organizations and is considered an investment in the next generation with the return on that investment benefitting our community and communities around the globe.
Graduating seniors from public or private high schools and current college students who plan to attend a recognized post-high school institution in the fall of 2015 may apply for scholarship assistance.
