Medina Scholarship Fund gives out $6,000 annually; welcomes donations
Press Release, Medina Scholarship Fund
MEDINA – The 2017 school year is soon coming to an end and the Medina High School Honor’s Convocation is just a few weeks away.
It is a time to honor Medina students for their hard work and dedication. The Medina Scholarship Fund would like to thank our generous donors for their support. Without them the Medina Scholarship Fund would not be able to help so many college-bound seniors.
The Medina Scholarship Fund is a non-profit organization founded in 1991 by a group of business, school, and community representatives. Its purpose is to increase opportunities for MHS students to receive a post-high school education.
A local committee determines the scholarship recipients. Applications are evaluated anonymously. The focus is on financial need, class placement, extracurricular and volunteer activities. The Fund awards approximately $6,000 in scholarships annually and contributes $500 to the school’s Presidential Scholarship.
At present, this fund is supplemented by an annual mailing, soliciting donations. Local donors receive a tax deduction and memorials are encouraged.
To make a donation please mail your tax deductible check to: Medina Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 185, Medina , NY 14103.
