After the 2010 Multi Year Reunion, the Alumni Association was organized and incorporated as a 501 c3 Not for Profit entity . The profit realized from the reunion was the seed money to establish the Washingtonville Alumni Association Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a Washingtonville graduate who has attended the school from grade 6 through 12. To be eligible the student must be a child or grandchild of a Washingtonville High School graduate and accepted to any two/four year college or trade school. The candidate submits an essay choosing between two topics – “What growing up in the community has meant to me” or “What influence has the family member alumni of Washingtonville had on me.” A copy of the college acceptance letter and two faculty recommendations are also required. The selection of the awardee is a blind process by the members of the alumni board.
The scholarship has been sustained by the generosity of Washingtonville Alumni via dues paid either yearly – $10 or $25 for three years.
Payment for dues can be made to the Washingtonville Alumni Association c/o Rose VanRegenmortel 11 North Street Washingtonville NY 10992. Please be sure to put your grad year on your check. Dues are tax deductible.
