The Association has awarded 132 scholarships since 1974 to graduating seniors of The Whitesboro Central School District as of June 2020. These scholarships are awarded to seniors who are going to college or a vocational school, and the criteria for these awards are based on community service, participation in school activities, academic achievements and employment. Applications are available in the Guidance Office to every senior in January and must be returned by the stated deadline for the seven-member scholarship committee to individually review each applicant. The committee presents their recommendations to the full Board of Directors for approval. The scholarships are presented to the recipients at the Annual Banquet. The recipients in 2020 were Drake Dowd, Kylie Cleary and Cassandra Lynn Turczyn. Each recipient received a check for $2,000.00. Pictures and profiles of the winners will displayed at the Dunham Public Library in Whitesboro throughout the summer. The very popular and successful Annual Alumni Association's Golf Tournament and our receipt of scholarship donations have significantly contributed to the Association's ability to fund this award.

The Board, in recognition of the increasing needs for scholarship stipends, is continuing its focus on efforts to increase the scholarship fund. A greater number of scholarships and/or money awarded is the Associationís goal. We are thankful for the contributions from Association members and especially non-members who have supported the Scholarship fund.

While more is good, it carries with it the need for more ideas, experience, and commitment in managing and administrating a scholarship program. We welcome the participation of any alumni who want to share in the Boardís work!!!!!!
