In 2022 the Scholarship Foundation distributed $135,000 to 50 deserving graduates and post graduates of NCHS for an average scholarship of $2,700 each - and that was thanks to you. We continue to look for ways to support our fundraising efforts to build our endowment. In doing so, we can increase the amount of our general fund and aid more students, but we need your help.
