Thirty-six seniors in the EHS Class of 2012 were offered $2,140,573 in scholarships to two- or four-year schools. This number was figured from the total amount offered over those two or four years, not scholarships accepted.
The number also includes the local scholarships awarded this year. There were 31 local scholarships given out by 22 organizations, totaling $13,350.
Editor’s  Note:
Thanks goes especially to those local organizations that handed out scholarships to students.  It is an honor to be a part of community that serves their youth and helps them to get a start to adulthood.  Thanks also to EHS for their help in compiling this listing.
