Liverpool Dollars for Scholars® Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Over Two Million Dollars Awarded in 50 Years

What began as the Liverpool High School Scholarship Committee in 1970 became Liverpool Dollars for Scholars in 1984, when the school group and a community organization merged in order to recognize more students.  Fifty years later, 5310 students have received more than two million dollars in scholarships from Liverpool Dollars for Scholars.

This year, under the auspices of Scholarship America, Liverpool Dollars for Scholars awarded 178 scholarships worth a total of $115,350 to Liverpool High School graduating seniors.  

Every scholarship has a story.  Some are old; others are new.  Some honor a loved one or a special event; others represent the hard work of student and adult volunteers to raise money.  Some are given by generous individuals, businesses, and organizations who believe in our cause; others come from donations pooled together to create a scholarship.  Some are endowed; others are funded annually.  Every donation makes a difference.

Scholarship winners and alternates have stories, too.  They represent a variety of races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, genders, socioeconomic backgrounds, and special needs.  Some have stellar academic records; others have stumbled along the way.  Some have lived in Liverpool since birth; others arrived more recently.  Some speak English at home; others don't.  Many achieved success in spite of incredible obstacles.  They are scholars, athletes, mathematicians, artists, scientists, musicians, readers, writers, dancers, techies, activists, volunteers, and employees.  Some reside with parents and guardians; others live independently.  Armed with an LHS diploma and community support, they will attend two-year and four-year colleges and universities, technical schools, adult training programs, and apprenticeships.

Through good times and bad, the Liverpool community makes it possible for a group of dedicated volunteers, working collaboratively with the school district, to continue to grow our program.  By supporting our fundraisers and donating money for scholarships, school and community individuals, businesses, and organizations affirm their belief in higher education for Liverpool High School students.
