The Del Norte High School AlumKnights® is asking for your support.
It has been five years since the AlumKnights® was first established by a dedicated group of alumni with the sole purpose of giving back to our Del Norte community. Unlike other alumni associations, our organization is not in the business of organizing reunions or trying to sell you alumni memorabilia. Instead, we’re devoted solely to service – service to castle and community.
Additionally, we are working to provide fun events for alumni to get together and see old friends…or make new ones! For example, we held a successful Ballet Folklorico Alumni Fundraiser in September. As a result of their performance, we raised $2,819 to support our scholarship programs – the cornerstone of our work.
Recently, many of you also enjoyed food and beverage with former classmates, family, and friends at our annual Sadie’s Dine-to-Donate Fundraiser, which raised an additional $700 for scholarships.
Since 2013, we’ve awarded almost $30,000 to scholarship recipients through the Drawbridge to Success, Skilled Trades and Dianne Riley Erickson Nursing Scholarships. This year, our eight recipients are attending NM Tech, UNM, NMSU, CNM, ENMU and the Northwestern State University of Louisiana College of Nursing. We encourage you to read more about them on our 2017 AlumKnights Scholarship Awards page.
To continue our good work, we need your support. Currently, we are working to raise $10,000 for scholarships and other student support activities during the 2017-18 school year. Our goal is ambitious, but with your help, we know it’s attainable.
