Community Scholarship Association requests contributions from former recipients and the community

By Lisa Holm

Community Scholarship Association of Granby (CSAG) offers annual scholarships to graduating high school seniors. Applicants must be Granby residents who are soon-to-be high school graduates accepted at an institution of higher learning approved by the selection committee. The primary basis for selection is scholarship, with consideration given to need, initiative, character, and responsibility.

CSAG has been performing this service since the late 1950s when it gave scholarships to the first Granby Memorial High School graduation class! To date, CSAG manages contributions of all kinds, but particularly funds from a Holcomb family endowment and annual fundraising in conjunction with the Granby Road Race. CSAG has awarded thousands of dollars, including the David A. Schupp Jr. Memorial Scholarship, to nearly 400 students, making a significant impact on their young lives.

With the exorbitant cost of college tuition, CSAG asks former scholarship recipients, as well as the Granby community, to consider making tax-deductible contributions to CSAG so that the organization can award more scholarships and provide more substantial awards. Contributions should be made out to CSAG and mailed to Dan Caputo, Treasurer, 120 Silkey Road, North Granby, CT 06090.

Scholarship applications are available online through Naviance, at the College and Career Center or through your guidance counselor. Completed scholarship applications should be submitted to Mrs. Caruso in the GMHS counseling office on or before May 1.
