Letter: Showing gratitude to the community

Posted: Monday, June 5, 2017 10:30 am

Editor: The students and staff of Lodi High School would like to express our gratitude for the support and generosity that this community has shown to the Class of 2017.

At our recent Senior Awards Night, Lodi High seniors received more than $2,900,000 in scholarships, grants, military education benefits and college awards. Of that amount, more than $175,000 was awarded to our students by local service clubs, families, businesses and scholarship foundations.

On behalf of Lodi High School, a heart-felt thank you goes out to all those who work so hard to fund scholarships. Your support makes a lasting difference in students’ lives. Scholarships provide our students with much-needed financial assistance, as well as recognition for their hard-earned achievements.

A special thank you goes out to Dionne Brooks for all her assistance in the College and Career Center throughout this school year.

We are grateful that the Lodi News-Sentinel continues the tradition of printing the awards lists from Lodi and Tokay high schools. This recognition of our students and scholarship providers is important and greatly appreciated.
