Scholarships awarded each spring by the Cadiz High School Alumni Association are based upon interest earned by an endowment fund maintained by the organization. This fund has grown from the contributions of generous alumni and friends of the former Cadiz High School. To qualify, students must have achieved a 3.0 accumulative grade average and be in the top third of the graduating class. The Scholarship Committee, consisting of F.G. Gregory, Susan Zinko Jamison, Jon Kirkland, Patti Maffitt Sabo, and Jeannie Moreland Wheeler, handles an extensive application process.
