The Freshman class is trying to raise money for a new scholarship.

Ninth graders are trying to raise $250 as a class, then hoping to find a donor from the local business community to match that amount to create a scholarship to be awarded annually.

Any donor interested in matching our funds would be greatly appreciated.”

— Jake Fitzgerald

“We are looking for a generous donor to match our scholarship fund for a fortunate high school senior.  We would love to get in contact with interested donors,” said Vice-President Cooper Keen.

CLass President Jacob Fitzgerald added, “Any donor interested in matching our funds would be greatly appreciated.”

The goal for the ninth-grade class is to give a $500 scholarship.

“Five hundred dollars may only cover the cost of books for a few classes one semester, but it can be a meaningful gift that the freshman class can take pride in”, commented Mr. Kerry Naylor, the Freshman Class Adviser.

The class had already had a Christmas Party in December in order to raise money.  The cost was $2 entry and they raised a total of $160.

They will also be selling candy to raise the $90 needed to reach the goal.

Mr. Naylor went on to say, “We hope this will become an annual initiative for the freshman class and eventually become a tradition.”
