Scholarships for North High School Seniors

A project of the North High School Class of 1970

We are proud to announce that our class raised $3,000 in scholarship funds for our 50/51st Reunion last fall in 2021! Funds were collected through cash donations, online auction donations, and sales of Mike Brown’s black and white print rendering of the North High building. Thank you for any of the ways you supported our efforts to help current North graduates further their education.

Below are the three applicants who were selected to receive $1,000 paid to the university of their choice after they enroll for the fall semester. Congratulations to all three of these deserving winners, all of whom will be first-generation college students.

And to all of you, thanks again for helping with the first scholarships awarded from the Class of ‘70!
