This is the 58th year the program is offering scholarships to graduating high school students in the Louisville-Lafayette communities, to assist them in funding their efforts in pursuing higher education or training. Last year, we awarded $46,000 to 28 deserving graduates. Help us make this the best year ever in continuing the tradition of supporting our students!
It all began in 1962 when the Lafayette High School PTA collected funds from organizations and individuals to provide seniors with a start toward their college education. In 1965, Louisville businesses adopted these efforts and began to help Louisville High School seniors also. The Lafayette and Louisville programs merged in 1972 when Centaurus High School was built. In 2001, the fund expanded to include Monarch High School.
Staffed entirely by a group of dedicated volunteers, since 1983 the program has awarded 747 scholarships totaling more than $753,000.
Objectives of the scholarship fund are:
"No one was ever honored for what they received. Honor has been the reward for what they gave." Calvin Coolidge
