STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS

Theme: People That Look Like Me

Several alumni classes of both William M. Raines and Jean Ribault Senior High Schools joined together in healthy competition to raise the funds now made available to offer student scholarships to both school's high school seniors.

Each school has been allocated available student scholarship funds of $3,330. All funds will be spent during the 2020-2021 Academic School Year.

A special thank you to both William M. Raines and Jean Ribault Senior High School Class of 1990.  These alumni classes raised the most money for each of their schools during the 2020 Alumni Class-Wide Giving Competition.  

The scholarship theme for the 2020-2021 school year is "People That Look Like Me".  With so much going on these days that will directly affect the future of our students, we would like to hear their perspective on how these changes may effect their lives and what they plan to act.
