Three groups of alumni from Salina High School Central have joined forces to create the Salina Central Millennium Scholarship Fund.
The classes of 1998, 1999, and 2000 created this scholarship to honor the memories of their classmates who have died.
The idea to create a scholarship came from Adam Burnham Hulstine as part of the preparations for the 20th reunion of the class of 1999. When Hulstine died just before the reunion, his classmates organized to bring his idea to life.
Each of the individuals who are remembered through this scholarship is cherished as a friend who made the world better by his/her presence. The honored individuals are missed dearly by their families and classmates.
Application due date: March 1 annually
The completed application, including two reference letters and an official transcript should be submitted to your school counselor by the deadline. A selection committee of faculty from Salina Central will review the applications and make the final recommendation. The selection committee will notify the Salina Education Foundation of the name of the chosen recipient no later than April 15.
The Salina Central Millennium Scholarship Fund is awarded to a graduate of Salina High School Central who plans to attend higher education, either full or part-time, at an institution such as a university, college, or trade school. The recipient must have a minimum 2.0 GPA. The recipient should embody the traits that made the individuals honored through this scholarship so important in the lives of others.
