Five Additional Scholarships Available at the Community FoundationApril 13, 2023
Representatives of the DHS Alumni Scholarship Fund committee are thrilled to announce the winner of the Scholarship Fund logo contest. Emmett Prais Lewis, a current DeKalb High School (DHS) graphic design student, submitted the winning logo design.
“Emmett did a wonderful job on the logo design,” said Fund committee member Jane Levinsky. “The logo is timeless and stands as a symbol to embody all DHS students and alumni for future generations. 100 years from now, the design will continue to represent future goals and aspirations of students.”
The contest aimed to engage current students and allow them an opportunity to leave their mark on the newly created scholarship. The submission call was announced in February 2023, inviting current students to submit design ideas. The selection for the final design took place on March 1, 2023.
The DHS Alumni Scholarship Fund is an endowed Fund at the DeKalb County Community Foundation. The Fund awards scholarships to graduating DHS seniors pursuing continuing education and training for career advancement. Students attending a vocational-technical school, trade school, two-year college, four-year college, or university are eligible. The inaugural awarding of the scholarship takes place this spring during the DHS awards night.
Created as an ongoing legacy for DeKalb High School students and the community, the Fund provides an exciting opportunity for DHS alumni to participate in crafting this historical legacy to support future generations of DeKalb High School students.
The scholarship committee has scheduled an awareness campaign to reach upcoming DHS class reunions. “We are searching for individuals with a vested interest in the high school and community and those who are involved with the planning and organization of class reunion activities,” said Levinsky. “We hope to reach far and wide. We want all DHS alumni to become aware of this exciting opportunity.” Please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org with any information.
Donations of all sizes to the DHS Alumni Scholarship Fund are encouraged and welcomed. Donate online or mail checks to the DeKalb County Community Foundation and memo the DHS Alumni Scholarship Fund for the designation.
