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. The Apple for Lawrence Enrietto Scholarship was established by the Louisville Chamber of Commerce in memory of long time Louisville resident and philanthropist Lawrence Enrietto. It is available to one Louisville resident only.
Staffed entirely by a group of dedicated volunteers, since its inception the program has awarded nearly 550 scholarships totaling more than $470,000.
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
