It's a busy time of year for the Liverpool Dollars for Scholars Board of Directors. Seniors attended an assembly on Feb. 28, where speakers told seniors about the upcoming March 6 and 13, Liverpool Dollars for Scholars Phone-a-thons and the scholarship application process. Seniors will be asked to sign up to make phone calls to school district residents, family, and friends. They can also sign up in the Liverpool High School Counseling Center and the Main Office. Students in Grades 9, 10, and 11 are also encouraged to sign up for the Phone-a-thons. All volunteers will be encouraged to call family members and friends in addition to the people on our calling lists. Students should arrive at the Phone-a-thon with a list of names, complete addresses, and phone numbers of family and friends they plan to contact.
College-bound seniors are expected to complete the Liverpool Dollars for Scholars application, which will be available starting March 1. Completed applications are due in the Liverpool High School Counseling Center (Room 405) no later than 3 p.m. on Friday April 1. Check the school website, Liverpool.k12.ny.us by going to the high school site, click on departments, the Career Center, and then Dollars for Scholars for specific information about scholarships and a link to see a copy of the application. Academic Advisement teachers will have applications for students who were absent on March 1.
More than 180 scholarships were awarded to students in the Class of 2010. We are in the process of contacting donors and collecting the money that will be awarded to LHS Class of 2011 graduates. Plans are now being made for our annual reception for scholarship donors and winners as well as a summer golf tournament to raise money for scholarships.
Donations are always appreciated. Board members are grateful for the support of the entire Liverpool community as we continue to work toward our eventual goal of a scholarship for every college bound senior.
