DOLLARS FOR SCHOLARS TO AWARD SCHOLARSHIPS

The Dollars for Scholars 19th Annual Awards Ceremony was held Thursday evening, May 11, 2017 in the Lake Worth High School Tommy Hansen Hall Auditorium. At that time, $104,000 was awarded to 53 recipients. This resulted in more than one million dollars being awarded in scholarships since the foundation’s beginning in 1999. Forty-eight students received $89,000 in General Academic and Vocational/Technical scholarships. Five recipients were awarded scholarships in memory of Barry Grunow in the amount of $15,000. All recipients were selected after a thorough evaluation of their applications: academic achievement, goals, extracurricular activities, community service, accomplishments, recommendations, and financial need.

 Scholarships ranging in value from $1,000 to $5,000 were made possible with the generous contributions of $25,000 from the City of Lake Worth; Dr. Elvis Epps, LWHS principal, donation of $25,000 from ea market funds; the support of community civic organizations (Kiwanis, Rotary, Lions, Women’s Club, Baha’i); Lake Worth Street Painting Festival; the Alumni Foundation fund raising; generous individuals; and the interest earned from the Dollars for Scholars Foundation endowments. 

We are truly fortunate and grateful to have these resources of supporters who are willing to invest in making it possible for students to achieve their dream of a college education.

Randy Hall Memorial Fund

The Alumni Board of Directors lost not only a wonderful Treasurer and Board Member, but a loyal and terrific friend with the sudden passing of Randy Hall. A 1960 graduate of Lake Worth High School, Randy was an integral part of our Alumni Foundation, serving as Treasurer, and was a well respected and invaluable member of our Board.

The Lake Worth High School Alumni Foundation is setting up a Memorial Fund in Randy’s memory. If desired, please send any amount, tax deductible, to the address listed below and note Randy Hall Memorial Fund on your check. We certainly appreciate any donation.

 NEWSPAPER DISTRIBUTION IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Two issues of the Alumni Foundation newspaper were mailed to over 11,000 alumni in 2013.
The cost to your Alumni Foundation for these two issues was $8321 which represents over 80% of our administrative expenses.

In order to save most of this money, we plan to take the following steps beginning in 2015.

  1. Continue to create the newspaper twice a year.
  2. Deliver printed newspaper only to Alumni Foundation members (see membership application elsewhere on this website).
  3. Provide newspaper on our website for all other alumni.

Thank you for your understanding as we implement these changes.
