SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS NIGHT
When: Wednesday, May 15, 2019
Where: SPHS Performing Arts Center
What: Scholarship Awards Night is a program for our local and community scholarship donors to present a high school student recipient with their scholarship award. ONLY students receiving a scholarship or award at this event will receive an invitation in the mail approximately two weeks before the event. As many donors prefer to award funds privately, not receiving an invitation does not mean students are not receiving awards; they will just not be receiving that award at this event.
We are extremely proud of all our students who have received scholarships and awards from other outside organizations, colleges and/or universities. As much as we'd like to recognize these students at this event, we limit this evening to our community donors. Students will have the opportunity to submit awards they have received so we can recognize their scholarship awards in the Scholarship Night printed program as well as the graduation ceremony program.
