Hagerstown Community College

Amy plans to attend Salisbury State University after Hagerstown Community College where she will major in Education.  She achieved nearly a perfect 4.00 grade point average At South High based on a rigorous academic schedule including both Honors and Advanced Placement courses.  she is treasurer of the Honor Society and has been recognized as both a Maryland Distinguished Scholar and Who's Who Among High School Students.  Amy has played Basketball and Softball all four years, serving each for a year as Captain as well as managing the Volleyball team for three years.  In addition, she has been a member of the Yearbook Staff, currently Editor and is a Student government representative.  Amy says she has wanted to be a teacher ever since the fifth grade and this scholarship will help her to achieve that goal. Trey plans a career in law enforcement and has already begun his higher education in the Essence Program at Hagerstown Community college, where he plans to spend his first two years.  He has achieved a strong 3.8+ grade point average at South High, while enrolled in a well rounded and challenging academic program.  He has contributed significantly to South High particularly in the athletics program playing football and running Indoor and Outdoor Track all four years.  He won numerous local and area sports awards and set a new Shot put record for SHHS.  He was also recognized by the Elks Lodge as one of Washington County's Teens of the Year.  In Trey's own words, the award will help "ease the financial burden and give me the opportunity to pay back the people who believed in me doing well and becoming a self-sufficient, respectable member of this community."

Funds raised from the 50th Anniversary Activities held during the 2006 Homecoming Weekend were turned over by the 50th Anniversary Committee to the South High Alumni Association.  Additionally, a portion of each Alumni memberís annual dues were set aside for the SHHS Alumni Association Scholarship Fund.   Funds raised from advertisements and sponsorships of this website above the actual costs to maintain the site also go toward building the scholarship fund.

The scholarship fund provides financial assistance to deserving South High seniors
