The Salem High School Alumni Association awarded $326,125 in scholarships—the most it has ever given—to 96 individuals at its 133rd annual reunion and banquet on May 24.
The scholarship recipients include 55 new Salem High School graduates, 37 alumni enrolled in undergraduate programs or healthcare-related graduate programs, and four current students, who were awarded Pardee Band Camp Scholarships. The income from the association's $9.5 million investment portfolio funds the scholarships and the association's operating expenses.
Treasurer Daniel T. Moore thanked all the association's donors. "Your contributions are an investment in every award recipient’s future. Ninety-six students this evening will have a jumpstart on life because of your contributions to the alumni association. Investing in someone's education is a start to their future success," he said. He offered special thanks to the Hickey and Peters families for creating the Lois A. Peters Memorial Business Scholarship in 2013.
Please join us for the next banquet May 2015.
