Dear Friends of POLAHS,

It’s that time of the year when I reach out to you on behalf of students who have very bright futures ahead. Your support provides the boost they need to achieve their dreams, and I’m grateful for your generous commitment to education. 
With your scholarship donation, our students will:

  1. Enroll in college (first in the family for most students)
  2. Choose the college that aligns with their academic and personal goals
  3. Reduce their work hours and spend greater time focusing on their studies

As a sponsor, you will be invited to our Scholarship Awards Banquet on May 31st to meet your scholar-ship recipient. Your support will be recognized in a press release, event program, and on our website.

Thank you for believing in our college-bound seniors!
