Graduating John C. Birdlebough High School seniors recently received a financial boost for their future pursuits during a scholarship ceremony.
Nearly three dozen students earned awards and recognition throughout the evening, as friends, family, faculty and community members were on hand to offer their support. The scholarships were funded through the Phoenix chapter of Dollars for Scholars, as well as local businesses and individual donors. In DFS scholarships alone, $44,000 was awarded during the evening.
