The Lake Worth High School Alumni Foundation, in support of "Dollars for Scholars" Foundation, is dedicated to sponsoring programs and services that enhance the quality of education in our community now and in the future.

This year The Alumni Foundation is holding a golf tournament at beautiful Atlantis Country Club on November 8, 2014. It will raise a significant amount of money for scholarships for enrolled students who deserve the right to an education. We can only do this with support from valued friends like you. There are many levels of participation; for example, golfers, sponsors, tee signs and copter drop. They are listed in the enclosed brochure. We raise a significant amount of money from the silent auction, so in-kind donations are also greatly appreciated.

We invite you to work with us so that the Alumni Foundation and the Dollars for Scholars Foundation can continue their mission to provide quality education and scholarships to the neediest students. Please look over the enclosed brochure and determine where you might help! Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. We look forward to hearing from you.

Two issues of the Alumni Foundation newspaper were mailed to over 11,000 alumni in 2013.

The cost to your Alumni Foundation for these two issues was $8321 which represents over 80% of our administrative expenses.

In order to save most of this money, we plan to take the following steps beginning in 2015.

1. Continue to create the newspaper twice a year.

2. Deliver printed newspaper only to Alumni Foundation members (see membership application elsewhere on this website).

3. Deliver newspaper by email to any alumnus upon request (whether or not they are an Alumni Foundation member). If you would like the newspaper to be emailed to you, please send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and simply put the words LWHS Alumni Newspaper in the subject line of your email. Please include your name and graduating class in the body of the email.

4. Provide newspaper on our website for all other alumni.

Thank you for your understanding as we implement these changes.

At the upcoming 2014 Lake Worth Dollars for Scholars Awards Ceremony, $87,000 will be awarded to 56 students.  Forty-nine students will receive $72,000 from the general scholarship fund and seven students will receive $15,000 from The Barry Grunow Memorial Scholarship. The Grunow scholarship was named in honor of Barry Grunow a teacher at Lake Worth Middle School who was slain in his classroom on the last day of school in 2000.  The Grunow Scholarship is available to students in any public, private or parochial school in Palm Beach County who aspire to teach.

The 16th annual Lake Worth Dollars for Scholars Scholarship Ceremony will be held Wednesday, May 7th at 7:00 PM at Lake Worth High School.  The ceremony will be held in the auditorium located in Tommy Hansen Hall.

"This is our sixteenth year of awarding scholarships," said Lake Worth Dollars for Scholars President, Dave Cantley. "In our first year, 1999, we awarded $10,000 to 15 students."  The scholarship fund has awarded over $835,700 since its initial year.  The fund also has $589,000 endowed in the name of individuals, their loved ones, the Lake Worth High School Alumni Foundation and The Barry Grunow Memorial Scholarship Fund.

According to Mr. Cantley, "Many volunteers have worked tirelessly to make these scholarships possible.  Many individuals, businesses and civic clubs have graciously given of their time and money to our mission.  An anonymous donor has contributed $10,000 for two years consecutively.  The Lake Worth High Alumni Foundation pays all overhead expenses of Dollars for Scholars.  Lake Worth High Principal, Dr. George Lockhart contributes annually from flea market funds to assist his students in realizing their dream of a college education."

Mr. Cantley, also a former Principal at Lake Worth High, tells graduating Seniors, "Have a successful college career, get a good job, move to Lake Worth, make a lot of money, have kids and send them to Lake Worth High."

On Wednesday, March 12, 2014, the Palm Beach County School Board presented members of the Lake Worh High School Alumni Foundation and Lake Worth Dollars for Scholars with certificates of appreciation.  The School Board praised both groups for the exceptional work which has been done raising money for scholarships for county students.  Since 1999 more than $750,000.00 in scholarships has been awarded.  Applicants must prove their ability to succeed in college through their grade point average, college entrance exam scores, extracurricular and community involvement and recommendations from their teachers and guidance counselors. All recipients must demonstrate financial need.
