Plans are underway for our annual Dollars For Scholars Phone-a-thon, when Liverpool High School students will call Liverpool Central School District residents, family members, and friends to gather pledges for scholarships to be awarded to graduating LHS seniors in June 2010. The more money we raise, the more scholarships can be awarded and the closer we get to our goal of a scholarship for every college bound senior.
There will be an informational meeting for seniors during Academic Support sometime in February. Dollars for Scholars Board members, Liverpool High School personnel, and recent graduates will talk about Dollars for Scholars, the Phone-a-thon, and the scholarship application process. Student volunteers will be recruited to participate in the Phone-a-thon, which will be held in the LHS cafeteria on the following Sundays: March 7 and 14, 2010. The Phone-a-thon is a wonderful opportunity for students to provide a community service and have fun working together for a worthwhile cause. Volunteers are treated to supper and a training session before they begin making phone calls. Students in grades 9, 10, and 11 will also be encouraged to participate.
Dollars for Scholars Board member Matt Hinkey will chair the Phone-a-thon, with lots of assistance from other active Board members who continue to work hard to raise money for LHS graduating seniors. The Phone-a-thon is our biggest fundraiser and we look forward to another successful year. During these difficult economic times, we are more grateful than ever for the generous support from individuals and businesses in our community. When money is tight, the Dollars for Scholars scholarships make an even bigger difference in the lives of the Liverpool High School graduating seniors who receive them. The board continues to appreciate the support of the entire Liverpool community as we work together for the higher education of our LHS graduates.
