The Alumni Association is pleased to award scholarship money to deserving high school seniors. The amount of the scholarship is determined by the Executive Board. The recipient must attend one full semester of school or refund the money. Recipients are announced during the High School Awards Night and the certificates are distributed at the annual banquet. Recipients must attend the banquet in order to receive the scholarship and provide proof of enrollment. Each student applying must maintain a “B” average and have attended Carlisle Schools for two full years.
Stars for Tomorrow:
This award models the statewide Character Counts Initiative and is given to two 8th grade students each year. We have formed a partnership with our local banks in providing a cash award to students displaying the six pillars. Students complete an application form and submit two recommendations from adults who can attest to their good character. A selection committee, made up of community members, reviews the forms and recommendations. The winners are announced at the annual banquet.
