A total of $50,000 in scholarships will be given to Kenton High School seniors through the Kenton City Schools Excellence for Education Foundation.
The amount was established at the May 2 meeting of the foundation.
Trustees heard from foundation treasurer Cheryl Brielmaier concerning the endowed funds and the interest to be used for this year’s scholarships.
The scholarships are awarded each May to KHS seniors. Applications are available through the year at the guidance office. Awards Day will be May 15 at KHS.
Scholarship recipients are reminded that scholarships must be used within one year. Any questions may be directed to guidance counselor Norla Strasbaugh at the high school.
Individuals interested in establishing a scholarship or adding to an existing scholarship fund may contact any of the following trustees: Dave Sturgeon, Linda (Ron) Smith, Diane (Leonard) Smith, Dave Haushalter, Jim Pruden, “Bud” Winzenried, Paul McKinley or Carole Crates.
The foundation was founded in 1989 to provide a method for alumni, businesses and others to give tax-exempt gifts for the purpose of supporting academic, cultural activities and scholarships for KCS students.
All schools in the Kenton district receive allocations from the foundation’s general fund for enrichment and cultural activities.
