Hello Spartans! Here are this week’s scholarships:

  • Spartan seniors–Jerry Deuker is a name from Spartan past, he was Mr. Spartan and in his memory, we have a great scholarship that you won’t want to miss.  Open to all seniors regardless of GPA, it is $2500 and if you have been a leader, a citizen, a contributor, this one’s for you. We will award up to 8 of our best seniors, and you need to apply.  Write a 1-2 page essay, describe your character and your dreams and how you served our community. Do this and something special could be coming your way.
