Kroger Scholarship 2023-24

The Kroger Scholarship aims to identify a senior from St. Henry District High School who embodies the pillars of success at SHDHS, which include faith, leadership, scholarship, arts, and athletics.

After evaluating the applicants, we will grant a $1,000 scholarship for tuition assistance to a student who has consistently demonstrated these pillars throughout their high school journey.

This scholarship serves as both recognition for their past commitment to SHDHS’s values and encouragement for them to continue embodying these pillars in the future.
