Make a Gift

Dear HHS Supporter,
 
Absolutely unbelievable! Can you believe that a high school as small as Hendersonville HS has an alumni association that has raised $161,000 over the last 8 years to give graduating seniors Heritage Scholarships? And this does not include the other endowed scholarships that we award each year.

Some alumni came up with the idea to give a scholarship to graduating seniors in 2009 and raised enough money to give four $500 scholarships. We’ve expanded our outreach to our alumni over the years and have given the following $1,000 Heritage scholarships each successive year: 10 in 2010, 18 in 2011, 27 in 2012, 32 in 2013, 29 in 2014, 19 in 2015 and 24 in 2016.

And now we are asking your help to expand even more in 2017. In keeping with the spirit of the Bearcat Nation, we ask that you join us in helping these young people get off to a good start in their post high school journey with a donation to the Heritage Alumni Scholarship Fund (HASF). We welcome any amount and have visions of a large percentage of HHS alumni making a donation which would make it even more special. Through your generosity, young men and women attending a variety of colleges and universities begin their future with a financial boost and an understanding that they are part of a special family whose bonds go on long after they receive their diplomas. We encourage you to visit the HHSAA website to view photos of the recent graduates who have benefited from the HASF. Should you be in town during graduation this spring, please join us at Move-Up to see for yourself the inspiring sight of seniors covering the stage proudly holding their HHSAA Scholarships. We are blessed to be a part of such a loving and supportive Bearcat family and it is your continued generosity that will make this gift to our newest graduates a reality.

Sincerely,
