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.

LWHS Alumni Foundation,
Randy Hall Memorial Fund
1701 Lake Worth Rd., Lake Worth, FL 33460

 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.

DOLLARS FOR SCHOLARS TO AWARD SCHOLARSHIPS

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.
