The Vision of a Scholarship
The next Induction Ceremony will be Saturday, September 24th, 2016 in the Student Center of SHS at 10 a.m. We are inducting: Bill Bradley, Class of 1976; Blake Carter, Class of 2005; Bernard Smith, Class of 1955; Lynn Pitts, Class of 1956; and Distinguished Service Award will be presented to Bob Schenandoah.
The Committee’s original goal was to build the funds in an endowment with the hope of presenting the first scholarship in 2001. However, after five years of hard work and the generosity of Pioneer’s family members and supporters, we were able to present the first scholarship in the Spring of 2000.
The scholarship began as a 4-year, $500 per year award and has increased to $1250 per semester for 4 years. The guidelines for the selection process require that the applicant be: 1. participated in SHS athletics, 2. a student leader, 3. have an outstanding GPA, 4. display a great sense of “Pioneer Pride”, and 5. demonstrate that he/she will benefit from the scholarship.
