Director Ernie Passailague said on KARK 4 News at 7 on KARZ they sold an estimated $1.3 million dollars worth of tickets. Those sales will fund thousands of dollars worth of scholarships for students, beginning in Fall 2010.
NLRHS students say they are excited to have another scholarship opportunity and will apply for it.
"If I'm able to obtain a scholarship, that would be a great honor, especially being the first year," senior Joseph Holloway said.
"I think it's a great opportunity. No matter how much you get, it could pay for your meal ticket or books, that kind of stuff you need money for," senior Carrie Mellinger said.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, counselors will tell the students how to apply for the funds and what requirements students need to qualify.
