The Cedar Rapids Riverside Alumni scholarship program continues to grow! Our wonderful donors have set new records each year since 2012 when we began mailing the newsletter to all CRHS/Riverside alumni. This alumni is such an amazing group! The 2016 scholarship donations totaled $6227, almost $600 over last year’s record. The banquet was exciting: an anonymous donor promised to match all donations up to $500. Would you believe we collected $1,265 over the next half hour or so? Lots of people came forward with donations big and small. Several of the honor classes collected among themselves and donated anywhere from $100 to $286. In addition, we received $300 from Elaine Braun Zoucha on behalf of Cedar’s Rapid Run. So thank you, every one of you! Thank you so very much for your part in making Cedar Rapids/Riverside the best darn alumni in the world!
