2018: Moline High School Class of '59 Scholarship Fund

Deadline: March 16 2018 at 11:59 PM CDT (Midnight)


Description

Mission Statement
The Moline High School Class of 1959 will create and maintain a scholarship fund in honor of their 50th year class reunion in 2009.

Objective
The Moline High School (MHS) Class of 1959 reunion committee's ultimate goal was to present to MHS a self-perpetuating endowed scholarship to provide deserving Moline High School graduates financial assistance in further education. The proceeds of this scholarship fund will allow for future training in college or credible education and career enhancing venues. The intent is to assist, encourage and benefit deserving students who are interested in self-improvement and further learning, to become more productive and contributing citizens.

Goal
The Class of 1959 originally set a goal of $50,000 for the endowment. The scholarship funds were generated by conducting hog roasts, participation in Birdies for Charity, direct solicitation, and donations. The initiation of this scholarship in 2009 commemorated the MHS Class of 1959's fiftieth reunion and the golden anniversary of the current Moline High School campus.

Ray Hamilton, a member of the MHS Class of 1959, provided the inspiration for this scholarship. He first suggested this project as a way to commemorate the anniversary of the class in 2009. Initially, money was raised through hog roasts, donations, and a trivia night. Funds were also raised through participation in the Birdies for Charity program. The Class of 1959 would like to thank the many people who have generously contributed their time and money for the success of this project.
