Opportunities to Give Back
The Frank W. Ballou Senior High School Alumni Association Inc. (BAA) was established so alumnus from all backgrounds that have had their formal education from BALLOU SHS. That transformed lives and positively contribute to society. Since graduating from BALLOU SHS that alum have held true to that vision because of the generosity of countless community members and businesses who share this view.
The Ballou Alumni Association believes that education benefits the individual student as well as the community at large. Some of the Graduates go directly into the work place while others go on to continue their education at colleges and universities after leaving BSHS. Gifted minds and passion for higher learning by bright young people, who have benefited from their BSHS days, want to further their learning but face a financial roadblock.
When the Ballou Alumni Association was restructured in 2018, it was decided to establish an endowed scholarship fund as one of it's functions. This endowed fund is the result of donations from our Alumni, friends and fundraising efforts. In 2019 the first scholarship was awarded in the amount of $1000 to deserving students pursuing college degree. These are BSHS graduating seniors who, without the help the scholarships provide, may not have been able to realize their dreams of a college education.
It takes small and large donations to have a positive impact on aspiring students. One that can change the course of their lives and have a substantial and lasting impact. You can help by clicking on the “Donate” button or contact Theresa Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
