The three 2015 awardees will be announced at the Senior Awards Ceremony on May 27th.
The mission of the North County High School Alumni Scholarship is to support the post-secondary education of graduating seniors.
By donating to our scholarship fund, you are helping three (3) NCHS seniors pursue their post-secondary education. Thanks to the support of NCHS alumni, family, friends and community, we have awarded $6000 in scholarships to 12 well-deserving seniors over the past 4 years.
As we approach our 5th anniversary, we are excited to increase our scholarship award for the Class of 2015 from $1500 to $3000. We are passionate about supporting NCHS students and are committed to the long-term success of our scholarship fund.
We REALLY did it, Hon! Thanks to your generous donations via mail, Crowdrise and the matching funds opportunity, we raised $3400 for the Class of 2015 scholarships on #GivingTuesday. THANK YOU! Maryland may not be the biggest state, but we have the biggest hearts. #MarylandGivesMore
