2006 Scholarship Tea

The annual Ashdown Scholarship Tea was held on Sunday, April 30, 2006 at 2p.m. in the Ashdown Junior High School Cafeteria. Forty-four scholarships totaling $ 8,935.00 were given to 44 Ashdown High School Seniors.

The Scholarship Committee has awarded over 100% of all donated moneys for some time due to investments. We plan to continue this trend and strive both to recognize students’ needs and to reward their hard work and high aspirations. We take pride in the fact that for many years every student making application has been awarded a scholarship.

In 2005, we awarded 24 scholarships with a total value of $11,200. This brings the total scholarships to over $214,024 awarded to 661 students over the course of our 19 year history.

The committee has authorized an alumni fund through which former students of Ashdown High School may contribute to the program in any amount and at any time. Such contributions may be made in honor or memory of friends and loved ones. Scholarships are tax deductible and may be sent to Ashdown Public Schools, 511 N. 2nd St., Ashdown, AR 71822.
