Recently I was at the AHS scholarship night for my daughter. My daughter was blessed to have received the Lynn Goodchild Memorial scholarship that night. There were about 156 scholarships awarded at a value of over $200,000 dollars. As I sat there taking it all in and reviewing the program something jumped out at me. The program listed all the scholarships being given out that night and among them were scholarships given by several past graduating classes. I thought about what a difference a little help with college could be to a student and there family. Perhaps the difference between going to college and not going to college. Then I thought why not us. Why not the Class of 76 sponsoring a scholarship. Imagine if just two thirds of the class gave $25 a year. That would be thousands available. Perhaps we could also challenge other classes to do the same. We could make a difference in a young persons life. I decided to share this with the class of 76 facebook group and it was met with much enthousiasm. So now a committee must be formed. I am planning to get this started in June and will need help. Someone from the class that is a Lawyer would be a great asset to have as we start this venture. If anyone is interested in being on the committee please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get you involved. Many things will need to be done such as legal tax work, setting up a bank account, deciding what the qualifications for the scholarship would be and I’m sure that the committee that is formed will have exciting ideas as well. Lets all look forward to helping some young people in the future.
