Grad funds remain at high school

2009 Grad Class denied access to funds

Dear Editor

I regretfully inform the graduating classes of 2011 and 2012 at Ashcroft Secondary School, that the graduating class of 2009 will not be giving out the $2,000 originally promised to four deserving students.

Due to some complications the school has now decided to put the funds into a general account, against the wishes of our graduating class. We would like to say sorry to those students who were eligible to the scholarships and those who deserved them. There is nothing more that we as a class can do to re-administer the scholarships to our community, instead the school has decided to use the money for what they see fit. Our class as a whole is very sorry.
