Dear AHS Alumni:

Last year, I wrote this letter before the coronavirus became the focal point of the year. This year, still amid a pandemic, we ask that if you are able please consider supporting the graduates and post-graduates of Athol High School in their educational endeavors. It has been an incredibly difficult year for all.

Online donations are always an option. To donate please visit our website, or donate via mail to Athol High School Scholarship Association, PO Box 338, Athol, MA 01331. You will also see a method to donate through the Amazon Smile Foundation where a portion of your purchases go to the Association.


In 2020, 22 people joined the list of permanent contributors and 16 added to their total contributions to bring them to a new level of recognition. In all, 250 alumni contributed. To become a permanent contributor, you must make a minimum one-time donation of $100. You may also consider the Scholarship Association in estate planning as well. Total contributions in 2020 were $58,180, down from 2019.

Last year, we assisted 37 students in furthering their educational goals by awarding $93,250 in scholarships. We continued two new scholarships for graduates and post-graduates that offer a $5,000 scholarship. We were able to help every student that fully completed an application and maintained full time status thanks to your contributions.

If you are planning a reunion for your class, please contact our Treasurer, Diane Maga Page, at dineyp82@msn.con or by clicking on the “Contact Us” tab on the website. She can provide class lists, mailing labels and other suggestions. In return, we hope that you can help us update our database by providing updated names and addresses of alumni to better contact them.  

The Association meets the first Tuesday of May to set Association policy and upcoming financial awards. If you are interested in joining, feel free to contact any member or visit the website. To close, I would like encourage the alumni of Athol High School to help us continue our missions of support for those currently enrolled in higher education programs.
