Over $45,000 in Scholarships were awarded at the Bridgeport High School Annual Academic Banquet on May 24, 2010. Scholarships awarded ranged between $250 and $2200 per year for four years. The Bridgeport School District is fortunate to have many patrons that support the students in achieving their higher education.
Rob Zitzelsberger, High School Principal, said "The financial burden on families to send their children to college is becoming increasingly difficult. The students graduating from Bridgeport High School are extremely grateful to the various sponsors of these scholarships. As Principal of Bridgeport High School I am proud to be part of a community who values higher education by permitting our students an opportunity to jump start their financing to a higher education."
Scholarships awarded to Bridgeport High School students are established by local organizations, business and community members. Treasurer Amy Porter said "The District currently has $262,000 in scholarship funds established by BHS alumni or in honor of BHS alumni. The scholarship trusts are set up to continue the tradition of giving for years to come."
