The CHS Foundation was formed in 1985 and is a non-profit 501(C)-3 organization. A board of trustees governs the Foundation, which is comprised of community members, parents and administrative staff. Our primary mission is to raise and disburse funds for scholarships for graduating seniors.
Funds for education are what we're all about. It's only with your contributions that we can provide this. By establishing these scholarships we recognize students for their accomplishments and encourage them as they continue to further their education.
