The Third Annual Scholarship Appeal began in November, 2018 and will continue until March 31, 2019. Donations within that time period will go towards the 2019 Scholarships for deserving Central seniors. Donation cards were sent to every member in November but you have an opportunity to donate using a credit card right here. Please give serious consideration to making a generous donation to this major CHSAAP mission. Click on the button below to donate by credit card.
In addition to the financial generosity of our members, a lot of work and effort has gone into developing this scholarship program by some very dedicated and loyal volunteer members. This committee not only worked to develop this program but continue to maintain and administer the process right up to presenting the awards. We are thankful and appreciative for all of their efforts:
Sixteen students completed the required application and submitted letters of reference and a written essay. Our selection committee headed up by Dr. Jose Gonzalez and including Ron Tella, Debbie Cockfield, and Ana Barraza reviewed the submittals and ranked them. They then made their recommendations to the Board. The Board approved the top eight for receiving one thousand dollar awards each. These were presented at the Annual Gala held on May 5, at the Imperial Room, 1 Rhodes Place, Cranston RI. Sincere regrets were sent to those we could not select.
