POLAHS' 8th annual Scholarship Awards Banquet was held on June 1, 2017. The outpouring of support from many individuals and organizations allowed us to award over $225,000 in college scholarships!

Together, we helped cover college expenses for more than 50 POLAHS graduates. In addition, POLAHS’ two College Counselors helped our students secure merit scholarships and financial aid from their colleges and universities. Our students’ determination to enroll in college is inspiring and the generosity of our POLAHS Partners is uplifting. THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to the success of our 2017 scholarship fund.
