Tiger Alumni Scholarship Fund

In December 1999, the Education Together Foundation Board started a campaign to reach JCHS Tiger Alumni to establish an endowment scholarship for JCHS graduating seniors. Setting an initial goal of $30,000, they have now received donations exceeding $200,000 from over 700 JCHS alumni and from the Scandia Golf proceeds. The fund’s new goal is to raise $250,000.

ETF’s Tiger Alumni is challenging each JCHS graduating class to raise total funds equaling or exceeding their graduating year.
