As you know, North High School and South High School have combined into one high school. The new Springfield High School opened to its first class September 8, 2008 after a nice dedication ceremony Sunday September 7, 2008. In honor of this reunification, a task force was established by three SHS alumni to raise student scholarship money. Our goal is quite simple. We wish to create a permanent endowment to provide scholarship assistance to graduates of Springfield High School now and far into the future. While our ultimate goal is to raise $1,000,000 initially, we must raise $30,000 before we can begin awarding scholarships. All donations are tax deductible.
The Springfield Foundation has agreed to host, manage and facilitate this Scholarship. The Foundation will publicize this effort on their web site and directly through SHS along with other Foundation scholarships. The Foundation will also accept applications, screen applications, and select winners based on our criteria“ service, positive leadership, academic performance, financial need. They will then present the students schools and colleges with checks to be added to the recipients accounts.. This assures us that the SHS Scholarships will live on and on.
As graduates and friends SNHS, SSHS and SHS, we are asking for your assistance. You have an opportunity to help students continue their studies after graduation from high school. Our recipients will make their own important contributions to helping themselves, Springfield and our world become a better place. Your support will make a difference.
