Our Scholarship Funds:
The R.N. Millett Scholarship Fund is our founding scholarship and was established in 1956 when the S.H.S.A.A was formed, in recognition of the thirty-four year principal of Springfield High School. This scholarship fund has been supported by many family members as well as graduates of SHS. For the past several years, there have been three scholarships of $2,000 each awarded to S.H.S. graduates from this fund.
The David Bruce Scholarship Fund, established in 2000 to honor longtime Alumni Association President and trustee David "Skip" Bruce, benefits students attending a trade or technical college. David “Skip” Bruce was President of the Association for many years and this scholarship was formed on his death in 1999. This scholarship is one in the amount of $600.00 annually.
The Maurice J. O'Leary Scholarship Fund, transferred to us by Springfield Schools in June 2005, was set up in the early 1960's in memory of Dr. O'Leary after his untimely death at age 57. Dr. O'Leary was SHS principal from 1944 to 1957 and Superintendent of Schools from 1957 to 1960. The Class of 1961 yearbook was dedicated to himwith the inscription "To a man who never ceased his efforts to give us the best possible education". Dr. O'Leary was an outstanding educational leader. He was highly regarded in the community and by those who worked with him as well as those under his leadership. Please help us as we endeavor to support his memory. There are two scholarships of $2,000.00 each awarded to a SHS graduate.
The Robert H. Paul Scholarship Fund, established in 2011, founded as the Robert and Mary Paul Memorial Scholarship Fund, has been rededicated, honoring Mr. Paul's many years of dedication to education at Springfield High School. Having managed and replenished the fund themselves for over 15 years the Paul family has turned this fund over to the SHS Alumni Association. A $1,000.00 scholarship is given each year to a deserving student of that year's graduating class.
The Karen L. Cross Scholarship Fund, established in 2012, was created by her family in Karen’s memory. Last year, a scholarship of $1,000 was awarded to a graduate enrolling in a nursing post-secondary educational program.
We appreciate the continued support of our members. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which means that all contributions to our funds are tax deductible. Some classes choose to commemorate their anniversaries with a donation to one of the scholarship funds, others donate their float prize monies. Our goal is to eventually become self-sustaining with the principal invested and scholarships awarded from income on our investments. If you are looking for a tax deductible contribution prior to year-end, please remember your hometown association and help us to help our SHS graduates in their post-secondary endeavors.
