The CHS Foundation Scholarship Endowment Fund
On December 8, 2020, a member of the Class of 1932 donated $2,000 to start the CHS Scholarship Endowment Fund. The CHS administration (Principal G.E. Doc Moller) immediately started to solicit money from various sources in order to guarantee the perpetual growth of the fund.
In 1982, the parent group (PTA), called P.E.P. (Parents Educators
Pupils) worked with the CHS staff to conduct a spring scholarship auction
and dinner from which half of the net proceeds would be added to the
Scholarship Endowment Fund. In the last few years, the allocation was
changed so that now one-third of the funds raised at the Auction is
distributed into the Fund. Over time, other sizeable and many smaller
donations have increased the Scholarship Endowment Fund which is now
valued at $400,000!
If a class or individual wants an Endowment Scholarship named after them or someone else, a donation can be given to perpetuate a Scholarship each year for eternity. We currently have 19 named scholarships. They are:
1. Class of 1932
2. Class of 1939
3. Class of 1946
4. Class of 1947
5. Class of 1967

Only the interest from the invested Fund is utilized to award scholarships to deserving graduating seniors. Recipients are chosen by the Faculty Scholarship Committee on the basis of application, scholarship, citizenship, need and other scholarships a graduate may have been offered.
The Scholarship Endowment Fund has provided 325 Scholarships since the first one was awarded in 1983, with the total amount given $188,500! Please contact The Foundation if you would like to contribute to the Fund. Thanks for your support!
