The North Syracuse Dollars for Scholars Spring Phone-A-Thon is scheduled for two consecutive Sunday's, from 5 to 8 p.m. March 6 and 13. Students from North Syracuse Junior High, and Cicero-North Syracuse High School, will be calling area residents to ask for donations to the scholarship fund. The effort from students during last year's Phone-A-Thon resulted in over $10,000 being contributed by the community for the scholarship fund.
Graduating seniors living within the boundaries of the North Syracuse Central School District, and planning to attend college, are eligible to apply for these funds starting in late February/early March. Students should contact their guidance counselor for an application. Last June, over 100 scholarships were awarded to students from our community.
The North Syracuse Dollars for Scholars Committee would like to thank the student volunteers, sponsors and community who made the North Syracuse Dollars for Scholars Bowl-A-Thon held on Jan. 17 a very successful event.
If you would like to make a contribution to the North Syracuse Scholarship Fund, please send your check to North Syracuse DFS, PO Box 5205, Syracuse, NY 13220.
