The Class of 2020 may have been short changed in the last two months of the school year, but they were not short changed in scholarship money earned by a single class.
A grand total of $4,553.244 (as of May 18) was earned by Bulldog seniors. That amount is amazing when you consider the dent made by the COVID-19 virus that interrupted all regular senior activities.
In recent years, senior totals reached $2.2 million or $2.3 million. This year it was doubled.
Congratulations to all award winners.
“You have made history in class scholarship earnings and in so many other ways,” one school official said. “We know that you will continue to achieve great things!”
