In 1995, the Highline High School Alumni Foundation started awarding one annual $500 Harry Lemon Citizenship scholarship to one HHS graduating senior. We now award seventeen $2,500 scholarships each year in the following categories:
One each year per department, determined by the HHS Faculty, for seniors in the following nine subjects: Science, Mathematics, Business, English, Social Studies, World Language, Music, Fine Arts and Photography.
Three each year for seniors with special needs.
Two each year for seniors who started ninth grade without much success, then turned around and were prepared for college by their senior year.
Three each year for seniors who are exceptionally involved in school, community, and/or volunteerism (Citizenship).
Our main funding sources are the Alumni memberships, plus generous donations, endowments and memorial gifts. We also raise scholarship funds at our annual Golf Day and the All-Class Alumni Reunion. From 1995 through 2011, we will have awarded more than $500,000 in the form of 254 individual scholarships.
Many thanks to all of you generous Pirates and community supporters. We look forward to continuing to provide assistance to our fine HighlineHigh School graduates over the coming years.
