Greetings!


At this point you are probably saying, "Where's the booklet?" Our contributions were down this year, and our investments were not immune to the economic meltdown. So, we had to come up with something new, and we now have our own website. Now you can click on the Contributors link above to view and print the current booklet.

Again, our goal for this year is to increase the number of contributors. We would like to encourage more former scholarship recipients and new contributors to join us in making this a banner year. Perhaps you would be willing to contact a few of your friends and encourage them to contribute as well. No amount is too large, and no amount is too small. Every dollar helps our young people with their post high school education.

Considering national and worldwide conditions, we had a fairly successful 2008, thanks to your generosity. With $60,000.00, we helped 106 students further their education. Our sole purpose is to financially aid our graduates with their higher education. All who successfully complete the application process are awarded scholarships. This is only possible with your valuable support. Sixty people joined the list of permanent contributors and another 35 added to their cumulative totals bringing them to new levels of recognition. We would be very happy to increase all of these figures in 2009. Once you make a minimum $100 lumpsum contribution, any future contributions of any amount are added to your permanent fund. We would encourage you to continue adding to your permanent fund as much as possible so we may continue to help our AHS graduates.

When given the opportunity to direct donations to a charity, you may wish to consider directing them to the Athol High School Scholarship Association. Including us in your estate planning is another method of donating to the scholarship fund that is becoming more popular. Thanks to the special reunion classes, we received many generous
contributions as a result of fund raisers held in conjunction with their reunions. We truly appreciate all of their efforts and applaud their results. Thank you.

If you are thinking about planning a reunion for your class, please contact the new website for suggestions and contacts for class lists. You could help us by providing updates on names, addresses, and email addresses. Also, any other information regarding our alumni  that you feel would enhance the website. A website is always a work in progress and can be very informative. An update following our annual meeting will also be available on the website. Speaking of websites, you might enjoy checking out Athol High School on theirs:

Your generous and continued support is greatly appreciated. Please mail your contribution today. All donations and correspondence should be sent to the Athol High School Scholarship Association, PO Box 338, Athol, MA 01331-0338.
