2013 Scholarships

Donate to the Scholarship Program

The AHS Alumni Association's first project was the Scholarship Program supporting graduating Albemarle High School seniors.  All scholarships are made possible by contributions from Albemarle High School Alumni Association members and, this year, a special fiend of Albemarle and loving grandmother, Shirley Smith.  Thank you to all who contributed to our Scholarship Fund. 

Scholarships are awarded based on need, merit and demonstrated contribution to the Albemarle community.  We set a record this year with fifty seven applicants.


We are pleased to display the six 2013 AHS Alumni Association Scholarship recipients below which total $7,000.  Scholarships were presented at the AHS Senior Night Program on May 23, 2013.  Congratulations seniors, the Alumni Association wishes you the very best as you take the next step in your life
