The Del Norte High School AlumKnights® is asking for your support.
Did you attend the Celebrate the Knight event in June 2014 in commemoration of Del Norte’s 50th anniversary? Did you tailgate at Homecoming last October when the 1974 football team was honored on the 40th anniversary of taking the State Football Championship? Maybe you joined the AlumKnights® to have dinner at Sadie’s last November or breakfast at Applebee’s this June.
All of these events are sponsored by a dedicated group of Del Norte alumni who are working to support the students and staff at Del Norte with scholarships and other activities to help with specific student and school needs. We also hope to provide fun events for alumni to get together and see old friends…or make new ones! To continue our work, we need your support.
In 2012, a group of Del Norte alumni came together to establish the AlumKnights®, an alumni-sponsored service organization dedicated to serving the Del Norte community. Less than a year after AlumKnights® was established, we were pleased to award three $1,000 scholarships to students in the class of 2013. We have since provided scholarships to four students in the class of 2014 and six students in the class of 2015.
That’s a grand total of $14,000 awarded during our first three years as an organization – and we hope to do a lot more with your generous support!
Currently, we are working to raise $10,000 for scholarships and other student support activities during the 2015-16 school year. Our goal is ambitious, but with your help, we know it’s attainable.
Will you consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the AlumKnights®?
