Committee Purpose

The purpose of the committee is to promote the sustainability of the Skylake Scholarship Fund and each year to select deserving college-bound seniors from White County High School (WCHS) for the award of a college scholarship. The scholarship money is sent directly to the appropriate college bursar's office when the student first enrolls at the school.

The Skylake Scholarship Committee is responsible for the Skylake Scholarship Fund which is is separate entity from the Skylake POA and is its own 501(c)(3) organization.

Funding

In 2018, the Scholarship Fund was able to provide four $1,500 scholarships to White County HS seniors. We also had enough funds to reward each of the previous year's recipients $500 for their sophomore year at their respective colleges.

Eligibility of scholarship recipients:

  • a WCHS graduating senior
  • planning to study at an accredited 2 or 4 year college/university or vocational school
  • merit (GPA, SAT, community service) and/or need

 

Funds come from several sources:

  • Donations by check are always welcome. Any time of the year is a good time to help us keep this fund solvent. It receives no funding from the POA. Donation checks should be written to the Skylake Scholarship Fund and delivered to the POA office. If your donation is in memory of Wayne Langford please note that fact on the check.
  • The fund also receives any profits from an annual Skylake supper hosted by the Men's Club and Skyladies. One or more pancake breakfasts are hosted to raise funds during the year.
  • All profits from the sale of custom engraved bricks for the Skylake Legacy Plaza are used to fund scholarships. CLICK HERE for the Legacy Brick order form.
