2023 Legacy Scholarships

Atwater High School Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship

The Atwater High School Alumni Association is proud to announce the recipients of the 2023 Legacy Scholarships. This is the sixth year we have presented these scholarships to deserving seniors. Each year a number of students apply for this scholarship, and it is always a difficult decision as all deserve it. We sincerely thank all who supported us this year and allowed us to continue the program, all donations are appreciated. We especially want to thank the Class of 60’s Runion, Class of 65 Reunion and Class of 70 Reunion committees and members for their generous support. Due to their support, we were able to expand the number of recipients to three this year. Reunions have been strong supports of the Legacy Scholarship Program and we look forward to working with future reunion committees in the continued support of the students at AHS. Donations to this program can be made through the Atwater High School Alumni Association website.

The Legacy Scholarship provides financial support for Atwater High School seniors. Students who have parents, grandparents or guardians who attended AHS and are continuing their education through college or trade schools are eligible to apply.

Congratulations to the following student recipients from the Class of 2023. In reviewing the applications, we were impressed with the quality of all the applicates and proud of the efforts of the students and staff at Atwater High School, all alumni should be proud.

 We look forward to welcoming you and the Class of 2023 into the alumni family.

A Special Thank You

The Atwater High School Alumni Association’s Legacy Scholarship Program is designed to support graduating students as they continue to achieve their goals by continuing their education through college or trad schools.

Most of our funding has come from donations from various class reunions and parties who include the fundraising as part of their program.

We want to give a huge thank you to the Classis of the 60’s Reunion Committee and event attendees and the Class of 65 Reunion Committee for their recent very generous donations. Through their efforts we will be able to continue to support the outstanding students at AHS. The contributions of these great committee and the classmate who attended the event are a true example of Falcon Pride. Falcons Forever!
