Our First $1,000 HHS Class of 68 Scholarship
We are happy and proud to announce that our class scholarship fund now has a balance of a little over $30,000. Thanks to all of our classmates who have made this possible. We will be awarding our first annual scholarship of $1,000 this year. The HHS awards assembly will be held on Wednesday, May 7th at 9:30am in the Salt Hawk Activity Center. Our committee plans to attend the assembly. We welcome any other classmates who would like to join us to see the presentation of our first scholarship. We do not yet have the information on the recipient of our class scholarship. We will share this information with you after the awards assembly.
We should all be proud of this accomplishment. We will be helping an HHS student further his/ her education this year and for years to come. Also, please remember that even though we have met and exceeded our goal, you can still contribute to our fund. If our fund grows, we may be able to award more dollars or perhaps fund two scholarships. Contributions should be made payable to “The Hutchinson Community Foundation” and please write “HHS Class of 68” in the memo line. Mail your contributions to the Hutchinson Community Office at P.O. Box 298, Hutchinson, KS 67504-0298. Remember that your donations are tax deductible and go towards a very good cause.
