THE SELECTION CRITERIA

The Tiger Pride Alumni Association - TAC Scholarship recipients are selected by the Richland County High School Senior Awards Committee.  Scholarships are awarded to deserving graduating seniors at Richland County High School based on the following criteria.

1) Students in good academic standing and at least a 'B' average.

2) Students that have demonstrated the Core Expectations of RCHS Students of Respect, Responsibility and Work Ethic.

3) Financial need of the student is considered in the selection, but it is not the sole criterion.

 

 

Note about the above process:  None of those who will be a recipient knows of being selected until hearing her or his name announced during the ceremony on Senior Awards night.  Nor do the TAC - TPAA directors.  It's a secret.   We have no part of the selection.

 

 

Donors List:

As stated previous years, we like to publish your name on our donors list, but will use “Anonymous” if you request it.  I do hope you will permit us to post your name.  We have good evidence that suggest naming names helps increase donations.  Thanks!
