MHS '65 Scholarship $$ Available to MHS '15 ers
Think back exactly 50 years. What were you up to? Graduation from MHS was imminent...what was beyond? Just then the Mississippi River decided to rise up, show her muscle and many MHS students contributed to the effort to keep our town—especially the water treatment plant—safe and dry. Nonetheless, 50 years ago many MHS '65 ers were thinking-planning college.
Do you have a grandchild or know of someone who will be graduating from MHS in a few short months? Could he or she use a boost for their education? The MHS 65 Legacy Scholarship Committee voted to extend one $1,000 scholarship to a 2015 graduate.
Interested students should visit molinefoundation.org or call Linda Daily (309) 764-4193 for complete information. Deadline for applications is March 15th.
The scholarship committee also agreed and set a fundraising goal of $65,000 to be reached by the end of 2015. Contributions can be mailed to: Moline Foundation, 817-11th Ave., Moline, IL 62165, earmarked for MHS '65.
