Dear Patrons and Community Members,
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of those individuals, families and agencies that contributed to our 2018 Scholarship Awards. This year alone, 60 local scholarships were awarded totaling $29,150. Not only were our students’ recipients of local awards, but they also received another $142,218.00 in outside scholarships for the 2018/19 school year. With the potential for many of those scholarships to be renewed, our graduates have the potential to receive $382,718.00 total over 4 years.
Students also had the opportunity to earn dual credit while attending Genesee Joint high school. 90% of the 2018 graduates took advantage of this program and earned a total of 442 college credits while attending Genesee Joint Schools. This has been our largest number of credits earned to date.
Out of our current 2018 graduates, 25 of 28 are headed directly on to a college or university to continue their education in the fall. Colleges and Universities our students have been accepted to are:
· Lewis-Clark State College
· University of Idaho
· Washington State University
· Blue Mountain Community College
· North Idaho College
· College of Idaho
Others are headed to the U.S. Marine Corps or directly into the workforce.
The class of 2018 has raised the bar high for fellow students and we know that they will achieve great things as they continue their education. But we couldn’t have given them all these opportunities without the outstanding support of our community. On behalf of the students and the Genesee Joint School District, we would like to thank you for all your support, scholarships, and guidance you have provided our students over the years.
Mrs. Wendy Moore, PhD.
