Fowlerville High Alumni Association seeks donations for scholarship fund
    In 1974, officers of the Fowlerville Alumni Association established the FHS Alumni Scholarship program. Monies are raised yearly to enable the organization to present scholarships to members of the current FHS graduating class. Over the past 40+ years, well over 10 graduating seniors have been recipients of this scholarship. 
     The organization hopes to continue this tradition. Again this year, the alumni association will present four (4) scholarships at the 2020 Senior Awards Night in May. Recipients are also recognized at the annual FHS alumni banquet; this year the 127th annual gathering is Saturday, June 6, 2020 at 6:00pm in the Kreeger Elementary Gym.
     The scholarship fund is maintained through the many donations received in memory of loved ones who either were graduates of FHS or who maintained strong connections to the schools such as teachers, coaches, bus driver, or friends of the school. Please feel free to make donations in any amount at any time during the year. Some send donations yearly; for some, it is a one-time donation. 
     Donations should be sent to Ed Helzerman, PO Box 446, Fowlerville, MI 48836. To be recognized in the 2020 program, a donation should reach Ed Helzerman by May 1st. Alumni board member & advertising co-chair Meghan Swain-Kuch can be contacted at 517-672-1747 or if you wish to recognize family & friends by making a donation for either a business card size or a larger entry (ex. 1/4 page) rather than the traditional listing.
     Your generosity will not only help maintain the scholarship program, but will help a graduating senior with college expenses. The FHS Alumni Association is a 501(c)(3) organization. It is the intention of the organization to establish a foundation grant once sufficient funds have been obtained.
