SCHOOL BOARD AWARDS ALUMNI FOUNDATION
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.

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
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.

Lake Worth Dollars for Scholars Foundation to award $75,000 in college scholarships
By Willie Howard - Palm Beach Post Staff Writer
The Lake Worth Dollars for Scholars Foundation will award a record $75,000 in college scholarship money May 8 to students at Lake Worth High School and other schools in Palm Beach County.
The scholarship program, administered by the Lake Worth High School Alumni Foundation, raises money through fundraisers and donations.
This year's scholarship money includes a $10,000 anonymous donation to the foundation and $25,000 donated by the high school using proceeds from the flea market held on weekends just west of the Lake Worth High School campus, said David Cantley, a former principal of the high school and a board member of the alumni foundation.
Sixty-nine students will receive scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 during a ceremony set for 7 p.m. May 8 in the Tommy Hansen Hall auditorium at Lake Worth High.
Most of the college scholarship recipients are Lake Worth High School seniors.
Five students who are pursuing careers in education will receive Barry Grunow Memorial scholarships, named for the late Lake Worth Middle School teacher.
The alumni foundation holds an annual golf tournament and special events such as spaghetti dinners and hogs roasts to raise money for the Dollars for Scholars scholarships. People have included Dollars for Scholars Foundation donations in their wills, Cantley said.
After this year's scholarships are awarded, the Lake Worth Dollars for Scholars Foundation will have awarded a total of $752,700 in college scholarship money, Cantley said.
For the complete list of scholarship recipients, please go to Dollars for Scholars web site - www.LWDFS.org.
