Senior Awards Night


Each year, many clubs, community organizations, alumni, and local businesses generously sponsor awards and scholarships for our graduating seniors. These awards are presented at our annual Senior Awards Night in May.

In order for a senior to be considered for any award or scholarship, a completed scholarship application, personal statement, and resume must be on file in Guidance. The scholarship application was mailed home and emailed to both students and parents on January 5, 2024.  A copy may be printed by selecting the link in the column left of this page.

The deadline to submit the required documents to Mrs. Toscano in Guidance is Friday, February 16, 2024.

Please note:

  • All scholarship recipients are selected by the benefactors themselves or by our Scholarship Committee based on specific criteria set by our benefactors.
  • Completion of the scholarship application does not guarantee a senior will receive an award or scholarship on this night.
