Welcome to Lake Worth Dollars for Scholars


The class of 2016 will receive a total of $67,000 in scholarships in a ceremony May 5, 2016 in the school auditorium.  This brings our grand total to $970,000 since our first year, 1999 when we awarded $10,000.  Forty students will receive $53,500 from the general Dollars for Scholars account, five students will receive a total of $10,000 from the Grunow Memorial Scholarship Fund named for Barry Grunow, the Lake Worth Middle School teacher who was murdered in his classroom on the last day of school in 2000.  This year, for the first time, two vocational scholarships will be awarded for a total of $3,500.  We hope to encourage more vocational applicants in future years.  Our parent organization, The Lake Worth High School Alumni Foundation, pays all our overhead expenses.  This ensures that every dollar donated to or raised by Dollars for Scholars goes toward a scholarship for a financially needy student.
