High School Seniors Awarded more than $1 million in scholarships

June 6, 2022

     At the scholarship reception in May, nearly 200 high school seniors were recognized as recipients of more than $1 million in scholarship awards.  More than 500 were in attendance as we celebrated and recognized students and our generous donors. 

      “I am deeply grateful for this opportunity and for the gratuitous gift that has been bestowed upon me. I cannot wait to step into my first ever on campus college class and begin my higher education.  For that I am humbly thanking those who have made this possible,” wrote one of this year's recipients.

    Thanks to the many donors who have generously provided scholarships that are making an impact in the lives of our students and their families today and into the future.
