2008 Scholarship Tea

The annual Ashdown Scholarship Tea was held on Sunday, May 4, 2008 at 2p.m. in the Ashdown High School Cafeteria. Twenty donors gave $ 9,675.00 to 18 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.

This brings the total scholarships to over $233,184 awarded to 709 students over the course of our 21 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.

The following students were honored during our annual tea:

We would like to thank all of the donors for allowing us to continue honoring our deserving seniors from Ashdown High School.
