More on the Hanover Permanent Scholarship Fund

Dear fellow Hanoverians:


During this short lull between the end of winter basketball
and hockey seasons and the advent of spring soccer, baseball and softball, I
encourage you to take a moment and read up on the Hanover Permanent Scholarship
Fund.  This is a great organization that has quietly given away almost a
half of a million dollars to Hanover school seniors since its inception in
1977.  But, unless you have had a child graduate from high school
recently, my guess is that the HPSF is off your radar.  Your awareness of
and an investment now in the HPSF will ensure that even larger scholarships
will be available for Hanover students in the years to come.


I had the chance to catch up with a couple members of the
organization this week, and was pleased to learn that they have invested
conservatively over the years. So despite the stock market decline, they will
be able to maintain the dollar amounts given in the form of scholarships at
graduation this spring.  The concern that I still have, though, is that the
need is far greater this year.  Many of us have watched our college funds
decline by 50%.  And what about our friends and neighbors who don’t
have college funds?  The general HPSF scholarships are awarded based on
academic achievement AND financial need.  Thank goodness.


Thanks so much to the good folks at the HPSF for sending me
the documents that are located at the following links set up by my dear
webmaster Mike Van Lare.  Below please find their brochure:
