Why We Need Your Support
High-performing students with remarkable leadership skills are prime candidates to be successful following graduation. But just because these students incision themselves as high achievers and are already engaged in activities that will lead to them becoming successful contributors to society, they can not always afford it. It is no secret Washington Preparatory High School is located in an underserved community. A shifting economy and an already declining investment in the communities that make up south Los Angeles create the need for financial assistance for students.
Your gift to the Washington Preparatory High School Class of 2003 Scholarship Fund will help the class of 2023 realize their goal of affording higher education and fund the resources needed to take their current endeavors to the next level. We aim to encourage, inspire, and award students who are already engaged in the work of making their community stronger and achieving their dreams post-graduation.
The Command Presence Award
Keeping with the spirit of what a ‘General’ represents, the class of 2003 has chosen to call the scholarship award the “Commanding Presence Award.” This allows students to use scholarship funds for various purposes, especially for continuing entrepreneurial or community work they have already started or for higher education endeavors. The selection committee with not only include the class of 2003 alumni but members of the school faculty. As part of the selection process, the committee will be interested in identifying students who have demonstrated strong moral character, positively lead peers to overcome barriers, build a more inclusive school community, and inspire fellow classmates, faculty, and staff to think beyond perceived limitations.
