Alumni Scholarships - Report submitted by Diane

Ralph had mentioned that we had talked about four scholarships, but no decision was made. We have $85,000 combined from the 100th and the Charitable. This money is currently with the Accountants of the Board. The Alumni can do the criteria of how the scholarship is awarded. Need to set-up a meeting in September for the Alumni Scholarships for the next commencement. There will be a sub-committee formed from tonight's meeting to discuss the criteria of awarding the scholarships, this needs to be done before September. The sub-committee consists of Janet Moni, Diane Carlton, Doug and Lynne Slade and Judy Gribben. Discussion that a monetary award to the Valedictorian since currently the Valedictorian only speaks on behalf of the graduating class.

Ralph had a request from the Class of 1990 to have a Reunion at the school.
