Scholarships 2017



The Tiger Pride Alumni Association - TAC 2017 Scholarship Drive

Mid-December to Mid-April




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

The TPAA directors: For the 2017 annual scholarship drive, TPAA and TAC directors with the donations from TAC members hope to award up to twenty $1000 scholarships.   

Note:  Donations over the $20,000 amount will be divided evenly among the 20 recipients and/or saved toward the 2018 drive. We have done both in the past to make the awards equal

As many of you know, the Tiger Alumni Center members have been very generous every year of the past five years -- raising in total over the years a total of $51,000 for 51 scholarships, last year, 2016, raising $20,000 for twenty scholarships and for the two years before that, TAC donors raised $10,000, and each year we awarded 10 scholarships of $1,000.  Maybe we can repeat the pattern this year and award 20 scholarships.

Thank you for caring!

Donors List:

As stated previously, 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!

Pesonal Note:

Thank you for helping our students.  No volunteer work that I (Richard) have done in my life is the equal to the joy I feel when you donate to help an ERHS / RCHS grad with continued education or training.
