Guest Column: Thanks for all the donations to the 2012 scholarship program

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — On June 13, the final results of Incline High School’s scholarship program were revealed during the 42nd Senior Awards and Scholarship Night presentation. On that evening, the efforts of many individuals spanning many months culminated in an evening of anticipation, surprise, and affirmation.On behalf of Principal Stacey Cooper, the faculty, and staff of Incline High School, I want to thank all the caring and thoughtful individuals, families, and community organizations who played a vital part in making the program an inspiring event.First, we thank the 41 local sponsors who gave 87 scholarships to 41 seniors that totaled a generous $116,150. This program would not be possible without their encouragement and support (especially in these economic times!). Our heart-felt appreciation and gratitude goes to each and every one and to each and every local organization who could not participate this year. We thank you for all your contributions throughout the previous years.We thank the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation for providing a means of honoring our outstanding students, many who lack the “financial need” requirement of most of our scholarships.We thank our parent volunteers who make the difference between getting the job done and getting the job done splendidly. Many thanks to Michael Goldberg, Robert Rappaport, Kathie Goldberg, Tanya Canino, Karen Hunt, Dolores Holets, Cass Maller, and all the members of the Incline Booster’s Club.We thank the members of the IHS Scholarship Committee who do their very best to match student qualities with sponsor criteria and help to make the presentation the best it can be. We thank all the individual community scholarship committees who deliberate long and hard to make their own difficult choices. Thank you to the LifePoint Church for providing us with staging, audio equipment and technical support.We thank the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza staff for their help in making our scholarship program known to the community and prospective sponsors.In addition to local scholarships, Incline High seniors received a total of $995,900 from other universities and organizations. Approximately 45 graduating seniors are expected to be eligible for the Governor Guinn Millennium Scholarship. The grand total for the Class of 2012 totals $1,562,050.— Faith Nicole is chairperson-of the scholarship committee-at Incline High School.
