"Achieve the Honorable"
“Achieve the Honorable” was defined this year by the outstanding seniors from the class of 2013 who received scholarships from the Hollywood High Alumni Association.
The HHSAA was formed over one hundred years ago with the purpose of providing scholarships to outstanding seniors. We are looking forward to awarding scholarships to deserving students for another hundred years!
Scholarship Committee Chairperson, Cilgia Halprin coordinated the interviews and party for the Achieve the Honorable Awards Ceremony on May 22, 2013 with committee members Carole Wells, Dave Moreno, and Lou Ramirez. Carole Wells read the Mission Statement and introduced the members along with Dan Doyle, President and Susan Silvestri, Treasurer who all presented awards.
The following are the recipients of the HHSAA Scholarships for 2013:
Susan Silvestri presented the Ephebian Lifetime Membership Awards to outstanding students who demonstrated high scholastic achievement and volunteered in community service.
