A SHORT HISTORY OF THE HORN LAKE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION
WITHIN A FEW YEARS OF THE ALUMNI GROUP'S MONTHLY MEETINGS, THE DREAM OF JANICE ROCHESTER KNIGHT AND BILL HOPPER TO HAVE AN ENDOWMENT FUND ESTABLISHED, WHICH WOULD PROVIDE SCHOLARSHIPS TO DESERVING HORN LAKE HIGH GRADUATING SENIORS, BECAME A REALITY.....THE FUND WAS ESTABLISHED AND A COMMITTEE (SEE 'COMMITTEES' WEBPAGE) TO GOVERN IT WAS IN PLACE IN 2003.

FUNDING THE FOUNDATION
CARL DAVIS SUGGESTED AN ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT AS A WAY OF RAISING FUND SUPPORT....THE FIRST TOURNAMENT WAS HELD IN 2004 AND CONTINUES EACH YEAR TO BE A SOLID SOURCE.   IN ADDDITION MANY GIFTS IN HONOR, OR IN MEMORY OF INDIVIDUALS, HAVE BEEN MADE BY DEDICATED ALUMS AND FRIENDS, PLUS...ANY RECEIPTS, IN EXCESS OF EXPENSES, FROM THE HALL OF FAME BANQUETS, WHICH BEGAN IN 2009, HAVE BEEN A WELCOME SOURCE.

THE PROCESS OF SELECTION
INTERESTED SENIORS MAKE APPLICATION WITH AN ACCOMPANYING ESSAY BASED ON THIS BASIC THEME: "WHAT I PLAN TO DO WITH MY EDUCATION IN ORDER TO 'GIVE BACK' TO HORN LAKE HIGH SCHOOL AND THE HORN LAKE COMMUNITY"...THOSE ESSAYS ARE USED BY THE COMMITTEE TO SELECT THE FEW FINALISTS.....THE FINALISTS THEN MEET WITH THE COMMITTEE FOR IN-DEPTH INTERVIEWS....AFTER WHICH, THE COMMITTEE HAS THE VERY DIFFICULT TASK OF CHOOSING THE ONE TO RECEIVE THAT YEAR'S SCHOLARSHIP.

THE RECIPIENTS
