TAMA NEWS-HERALD - The South Tama Scholarship Foundation will celebrate 20 years of awards on May 20, 2010 at the annual South Tama Senior Awards Night.
The Dollars for Scholars chapter was started in 1990 when a group consisting of the high school guidance counselor, teachers and community representatives joined together to apply for matching funds from the RJ McElroy Trust.
Since that time over $1,000,000 has been raised of which $600,000 has been awarded to over 1100 graduating seniors and the remainder funds a permanent endowment of over $535,000.
A special community reception will be held in the STC High School Little Theatre at 6:00 p.m. on May 20. The 2010 Senior Awards night will follow at 7:00 p.m. in the high school gym. Members of the organizing board will be recognized at the reception.
