Richard's Second 2017 Blast

Greeting 1,818 Tigers!


I am pleased to share with you a statement by RCHS Principal Chad LeCrone in support of TAC/Tiger Pride Alumni Association’s 2017 RCHS Scholarship Drive.  He writes . . .

"The TAC/TPAA directors, members, and donors have been instrumental in providing many of our high school students with scholarships to help them fulfill their post-secondary education goals.  It is great to see the alumni give back to the high school that played a major part in their own personal development.  I look forward to Richland County High School's continued partnership with the TAC/TPAA in order to serve our students."

Chad LeCrone, Principal  --  Richland County High School, Olney, Illinois



Given the season, wouldn’t a donation to the drive be a very appropriate Christmas gift?  You would be making an investment in both a graduating senior’s future as well as ours.  If we can help our future citizens, aren’t we also helping ourselves?   I think so.   Maybe you can’t do that this month.  That’s okay.  The drive will last until mid-March.  You have time!


Our 2017 Goal! --   $1,000 for 20 Graduates

Your participation is welcomed and needed.  Please help us fund 20 scholarships!
