CHARGER PRIDE SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION
THERE, FRIENDS AND ALUMNAE OF MEMORIAL HS CAN MAKE DONATIONS OR PLEDGES TO HELP FUND COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR MEMORIAL STUDENTS. THE FOUNDATION IS A NON-PROFIT PUBLIC CHARITY RECOGNIZED BY THE IRS AS A 501(C) 3.
AS THE WEBSITE SAYS, “IF A LOT OF CARING PEOPLE GIVE A LITTLE, IT ADDS UP TO A LOT.” THE CLASS OF 1973 INITIATED THE CHARGER PRIDE SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION. IN 2015 $10,250 IN SCHOLARSHIPS WERE AWARDED. IN 2016, WITH 3 ADDITIONAL CLASSES CONTRIBUTING, $18,000 IN SCHOLARSHIPS WERE AWARDED. TO DATE, THE FOUNDATION HAS AWARDED $44,000 IN SCHOLARSHIPS TO 41 MEMORIAL STUDENTS.
THE FOUNDATION’S GOAL INCLUDES HELPING STUDENTS FOR FOUR YEARS, NOT JUST THE FIRST YEAR OF COLLEGE. HAVING A BASE OF SUPPORT OVER A PERIOD OF TIME IS VERY IMPORTANT TO A FOUNDATION LIKE THIS ONE. IF A CONTRIBUTOR CAN MAKE A FIVE-YEAR PLEDGE, ONE TRULY BECOMES A CHAMPION FOR THESE STUDENTS.
YOU CAN DONATE ONLINE OR BY MAIL TO CHARGER PRIDE SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION AT PO BOX 1345, JENKS, OK 74037. FOR QUESTIONS OR FOR GETTING INVOLVED IN THE FOUNDATION, THE EMAIL ADDRESS IS -

LET’S JOIN THE CLASSES OF 64, 65, 67 AND 73 IN ESTABLISHING OUR SUPPORT TO THE FOUNDATION AND ITS SCHOLARSHIPS TO WORTHY MEMORIAL HS GRADUATES.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEE ALL OF YOU FOR THIS REUNION. I HOPE WE CAN CONTINUE BOTH MEANINGFUL, ENJOYABLE AND MORE FREQUENT CONTACT WITH EACH OTHER IN THE FUTURE.
Firmly founded, Alma mater, ever true we'll be.
