2022 Legacy Scholarship Award

Atwater High School Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship

The Atwater High School Alumni Association is proud to announce the recipients of the 2022 Legacy Scholarships. This is the fifth 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 are deserving. Fund raising for this program continues to be a challenge as much of our funding comes from reunions and class parties who include in their programs an element of fund raising for this scholarship program. We sincerely thank all who helped with this year’s fundraising which allowed us to continue the program, with a special shout to the Class of 2000 for their generous donation. We hope, with the number of reunions planned this year that they will consider the Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship in their program planning, and we can continue and expand his worthwhile program.

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 2022.  We look forward to welcoming you and the Class of 2022 to the alumni club.

Having younger siblings has instilled a sense of mentoring that has led her to a desire to go into teaching. Her love of education and strong work ethic are obvious in her academic achievements during her high school year and were noted in her recommendation letters, with special recognition for how she maintained her focus and efforts during the difficult closed periods associated with the pandemic.  Her plan is to continue her education at one of the California State University locations. In addition to her studies Lilyana was involved in Nation FFA, Basketball, Volleyball and Track and Field during her years at Atwater High School.
