Scholarships Awarded to the Class of 2017
In May of 2017, the Celina Education Foundation was able to award 35 graduating CHS students a scholarship to continue their education beyond high school. Each school year the members of the senior class at CHS have the opportunity to apply for a C.A.R.E. scholarship. Through the scholarship application process, C.A.R.E. utilizes an anonymous, standardized evaluation process in which recipients of scholarships are identified. As a result of fundraising throughout the school year, C.A.R.E. was able to award $35,000 in scholarship dollars to the 2017 graduating seniors identified to receive a scholarship. Each year our scholarship dollars are dependent on our fundraising success. Many hands make light work...consider partnering with Celina Education Foundation to provide more scholarship dollars to more deserving recipients!
Scholarship Recipient Highlights
Being rewarded the gift of education by people who worked countless hours to provide it makes me feel so loved. The Care Scholarship is giving me an extra step into my future and that impacts me in ways that I'm unable to express. It inspires me to work extra hard during my time in college and I will forever be grateful!
I moved to Celina when I was in the 2nd grade. Over the years, I remember when my teachers would tell us that the calculators, IPads, or dictionaries we were using were purchased by CARE. They reminded us that CARE stood in the gap to fill many classroom needs. As a senior, the scholarship I received from CARE is going to help me "fill in the gaps" with my tuition. I'm very thankful that CARE supports Celina students in all grades and sets them on a path for success in college.
