Members of the Aberdeen Central Class of 1981 saw a unique opportunity to use their class reunion to provide scholarships for Aberdeen Central students. At their 40th Reunion in 2021, classmates gathered over $3,600 in donated items for their CHS Class of ‘81 Reunion Raffle Basket and sold tickets. With $4,900 in raffle proceeds from ticket sales and generous donations, they established the Class of 1981 Endowment through the Aberdeen Public Schools Foundation.
Once the CHS Class of 1981 Endowment reaches $10,000, it will provide scholarships for Aberdeen Central High School seniors with excellent character, community service/work experience and financial need.
As of December 31, 2022 the fund balance is $3,860.
