WHS PTSA Falcon Award: These two scholarships will focus on all aspects of the application. Grades, AP classes, academic achievement, involvement in school activities, financial considerations, outside circumstances, personal drive and committment are all important factors. It’s okay to state your need in this application; relate how you will put this scholarship to good use taking some financial burden off of yourself or your family.
WHS PTSA “Liza Yore”Spirit Award: Our former PTSA president, Liza Yore, gave everything and then some to PTSA and our community. In her memory, this scholarship is designed to highlight the One Falcon, One Family mantra. Let your school involvement shine through with this application. How did you personally impact “One Falcon, One Family”? Academics are a part of this, but spotlight your involvement in our community, through clubs, activities, sports, extras that you were a part of -- what makes you worthy of this award? Tell us all the details.

The scholarship must be used for tuition fees at an accredited two- or four-year college or university, or an accredited vocational/technical school during the year following graduation.
