CHS Scholarship Fund Awards $158K in Scholarships to 114 CHS Students & Grads

From the Columbia High School Scholarship Fund:

One of our favorite days of the year! On Thursday, June 7th, we had a reception for our 2018-19 scholarship recipients. This year we awarded $158,000 in scholarships to 114 impressive Columbia High School students and graduates. We are so proud of these young people and ever grateful to the generous donors who make this possible. Thank you to Joy Yagid for taking the time to photograph this special event.

The Columbia High School Scholarship Fund (CHSSF) was established in 1923 with the mission of providing need-based financial assistance to graduates of Columbia High School for any kind of post secondary education. Since its founding, CHSSF has awarded over $1.1 million in scholarships to several thousand  students. CHSSF is governed by an independent board of local volunteers and is proud to be the largest provider of need-based scholarships in the South Orange and Maplewood community.
