Senior Center- Scholarships
The Weekly Newsletter often has new scholarships listed; be sure to check it out!
A scholarship has been established in the amount of $1,000 to be awarded to a 2017 graduating Senior. The name of the scholarship is the Covington High School Class of 1988 Caroline Crockett Darby Memorial Scholarship. Ms. Crockett-Darby was a member of the CHS Class of 1988 who passed away in the fall of 2012. CHS ’88 classmates have chosen to honor her memory with this scholarship. During her time at Covington High, Caroline was a standout athlete with tremendous love and pride for her school and classmates. After graduation, Caroline was an active member of the Covington community serving numerous charities, most notably Toys for Tots and the Lyon Elementary Mentor Reading Program. Our hope is to award the scholarship to a Senior that displays the same level of exemplary service to Covington High School and the Covington community. Applications are available in the guidance office and are due April 13th, 2017.
