WE DID IT! The Sue VanHooser Scholarship has been established thanks to your generous donations! 

Princeton Scholarship Foundation received an anonymous $5,000 matching donation toward an endowed scholarship for at-risk students at Princeton High School. We met the goal on January 26, 2012. The first Sue VanHooser Scholarship will be given this May on Awards Night. The scholarship will be given to a student who has overcome difficulties in completing his/her high school education and is attending a college or technical college program.

Thanks to Sue's family, friends and co-workers, we have matched the $5,000 needed for the endowed scholarship in Sue's name!
