  TO DONATE   

 

 

All you have to do is mail a check to our high school, care of Mr. Simpson, Principal!
 
The Address:
East Richland High School
c/o: Chris Simpson, Principal
1200 East Laurel Street
Olney, IL  62450
 
Your Check:
Make your check out to “ERHS” and in the note space, write “Alumni Website Scholarship.” 
 
The Record:
You will receive a letter from the school accountant for your tax record.  I will receive periodic reports listing the names and the total amount of the period (not individual amounts), and I will email you, thanking you and asking details about listing your donation on the website.
 
Our Goal:
Our goal this year for the 2013 scholarship is $4,000.
 
I have asked Mr. Simpson to develop the criteria; I have asked that his faculty, when time, select the recipient(s).
 
The Criteria:
The awards are not open to application by students nor the public.  Instead, they are selected by the ERHS faculty Senior Awards Committee based on the Senior Profiles  completed by the students. The criteria are fairly general and are listed below.
 
1. A student in good academic standing - top 25% of graduating class
2. A student that has demonstrated a commitment to the core expectations of ERHS students (respect, responsibility and work ethic)
 
The Need:
We all know the need.  Many of the 2013 Seniors come from homes with limited resources and, in these economic times, may have to put off continuing their education,  just as my mother had to do so in 1939. (In May, I read a ERHS board member's report that 50% of the county is at the U.S. Poverty level  -- or below.)  We have the ability to help.
 
The Tiger Quilt:
Now, many of you know that Mary Alice Resor Hart, Class of 1960, has donated an art quilt to aid in the scholarship program.  It now belongs to Tracy Martin, Class of 1960!  That certainly helped our 2013 Schollarship fund!  Thanks Mary Alice and Tracy!
 
The Campaign:
Your checks are welcome now and will be so welcomed throughout the year.  Remember; mail them to the school address above.  Thank you for being great Tigers!
 
Donors List:
I am not going to state the amount of your gift.  Instead, I'll place your name (or the word "Anonymous") in one of three categories.  Tigers' First Level: 5$ to 100$, Tigers' Den Level: 101$ to 300$, Tigers Roar Level:  301$ and Up.
 
Note:
The school accountant, Breann Milam, sends me an email after receiving checks, listing them by the surname on the checks.  If the name is the same as yours listed here at TAC, then I can identity you.  If not, then I can't.  You may need to message me after your donation to report it and so that I can list you with the other contributors.  Thanks!
