Their Mission: Ballard Community Dollars for Scholars advocates post-secondary education for every Ballard student by recognizing academic achievement and awarding scholarships.
Founded in 1995, Ballard Community Dollars for Scholars has awarded more than $521,075 in scholarships to over 1546 students. In addition to the scholarship program, 15 worthy Ballard juniors and seniors and 15 Ballard community namesakes, are honored at the Academic Achievement Awards Night each fall. The Ballard faculty selects the student honorees for the night and "Ballard Community Dollars for Scholars throws the party."
Each graduating senior from Ballard High School, Huxley, Iowa, who completes an application by the deadline for one of the many Ballard Community Dollars for Scholars scholarships, and who attends the Scholarship Awards Night in early May, will receive a minimum of $350 for their post-secondary education, technical school, credentialing classes or training. Many scholarship awardees will receive double that amount because they attend an institution which matches the local scholarship.
Haverkamp Properties is proud to be able to help present two scholarships to Ballard High School to Brady Harmon and Jacey Edwards. Congratulations!!
