Mt. Pleasant High School Class of 1959 Legacy Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 2

As their 50th class reunion approached, the Mt. Pleasant High School Class of 1959 reunion planning committee set up this fund with the Foundation to make a permanent impact on the Mt. Pleasant Community and Mt. Pleasant High School. The committee was formed at the class' 45th reunion in 2005 and chaired by Connie Wittekind Conley with members located throughout the United States, and met periodically to plan for the weekend reunion.

The planning committee hopes that their scholarships benefit students who possess dreams or hope of going on in school, but lack the support, finances, or confidence to make it possible. Huffman describes their ideal candidates, as students who may have a unique family situation, or may have been overlooked in school or initially thought they were not smart enough to pursue education after high school. The Mt. Pleasant High School "Class of 1959" Legacy Fund provides scholarships for tuition, books and supplies. This scholarship does not preclude descendants of the MPHS Class of 1959 from consideration.

Scholarships are awarded for a two-year period. Students must remain enrolled and in good standing with the college or university to receive the second year scholarship.

Scholarship Eligibility Criteria:

A) Be a graduating senior from Mt. Pleasant High School, Mt. Pleasant Area Technical Center or Oasis High School.

B) Have maintained a 2.5 minimum grade point average.
