Local Scholarship Program
2017 AWARDS DAY PROGRAM: June 2, 2017 from 1:00-2:40 PM in the HS Auditorium
St. Anthony Village High School has served the area well for the past forty-plus years. In 1962 we opened our doors and in 1963 we had our first graduating class of 59 students. This year’s class has 169 seniors, of that number, 95% will be headed to college. About 65% of them will be going to a four year college and about 30% to a two year college.
College costs are soaring upward, and in many cases, out of reach for some students. So to help out, in our humble way, we at St. Anthony Village High School have created a Local Scholarship program. The program has grown over the years to a point where last year local sponsors provided a total of over $40,000 of scholarships shared among our graduating seniors. To honor the sponsors and recipients, we host a ceremony in late May during the school day to award the scholarships. We call the ceremony the “Awards Day” presentation. The Awards Day program is a great opportunity for sponsors to be visible to our student body and community. It is also a strong motivator for students in grades nine through eleven.
