Thanks to You… Our membership drive for 2017 brought in $22,070!
In 1995, the fledgling non-profit Highline High School Alumni Foundation awarded one $500 Harry Lemon Memorial Citizenship scholarship to a graduating HHS senior. In 2017, we gave scholarships in the following categories: Science, Mathematics, Business, English, Social Studies, World Language, Music, Fine Arts and Photography, seniors with special needs, seniors who made great strides to improve their success during their high school years (Turnaround), seniors exceptionally involved in school/community/volunteerism (citizenship), a future technology scholarship for a student who intends to enroll in a 4-year college in one the STEM disciplines, for students who are pursuing vocational education and a future teacher scholarship.
This year, two new scholarships will be awarded: The John P. Ashley Family Scholarship for an engineering or business student and the Tom Sawyer AVID Scholarship for a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) student. Tom Sawyer was principal of HHS in the 1990’s.
Our main funding sources are your Alumni memberships, plus generous donations, endowments and memorial gifts. Join us for $10 annually or become one of our 833 Lifetime Members for $100. We raise scholarship funds at our annual Golf Day and the All-Class Alumni Reunion and it is our privilege and honor each year to award the Alumni Hall of Fame Honorees and the HHS Alumnus of the Year. Please consider donating this year to this worthy cause.
