2021 Legacy Scholarship Awards

The Atwater High School Alumni Association is proud to announce the recipients of our fourth annual Legacy Scholarships for 2021. Fund raising has been exceedingly difficult during the last year, with reunions and class events that support AHSAA during normal times we have depended on individual donations to allow us to continue to recognize some extraordinary Falcons. Our thanks to all of you who provided support no matter how small to keep this program alive.

The most difficult part of this program is selecting the recipients. The number of outstanding students who attend our school is amazing and all deserve our support and encouragement as they move into their post high school years in whatever way they choose. While high school can always be a challenge, the Classes of 2020 and 2021 have faced significant obstacles that those of us who preceded them could not image. To the students, and staff at AHS, we are both proud and motivated by your efforts during these unprecedented times. You all define Falcon Pride!

Congratulations to these deserving Falcons.
