North Iowa High School
Scholarship Fund Drive 2015 -16
 
     The North Iowa High School Scholarship Fund, which was established in 1997, continued to gain support this past year.  Coupled with the Ben Sloter Endowment Scholarship program the total local scholarship program this year was able to give over $80,000 in scholarships to graduates of the Class of 2016 from North Iowa High School.  The NIHS Scholarship Fund and Ben Sloter Endowment Grants have given over $800,000 to worthy area students since 1997.  The great success can be attributed to generous individuals, families, and organizations that have sponsored local scholarships for our students.  You too may also want to sponsor a scholarship as an individual, group or family in memory or honor of someone special.  However, if that is too large of a financial commitment, you can also benefit a deserving student by contributing to the North Iowa Scholarship Fund in any feasible amount.
     Any gift that you could bestow to this scholarship fund would keep an established tradition growing.  All donors will be recognized during the annual fund drive in the Buffalo Center Tribune and Thompson Courier/Rake Register and also their names will be included in the graduation programs each year that they contribute.   Also, if a donation of $100 or more is received in the North Iowa Scholarship Fund in honor or memory of a loved one, then that honored or memorialized person will have their name engraved on the plaque located in the gym lobby of North Iowa High School.  The North Iowa High School Scholarship Fund is managed through the North Iowa Community School business office in special scholarship accounts.  
     Thank you for your consideration of this beneficial program
 
If you would like to contribute to the North Iowa High School Scholarship fund or sponsor a scholarship, please contact the North Iowa High School Guidance or Principal's Office at 641-562-2525 or 800-433-2944 at Ext. 122 or 115.
