Evelyn Madden

Board member Evelyn Madden, Vice Chair for Education, makes things happen positively for students throughout the four-county area with her management of our scholarship program. This past school term, we awarded $14,500 to new and continuing college students (see below). 

Those who receive a GWCRHSAA scholarship are accomplished students from a wide range of culturally diverse backgrounds.  Our scholarships not only address financial need, but reward academic achievement and significant community service.  Since our founding in 1992, we have awarded more than $130,000.

The newest feature of our program is SMARTAG, an acronym which stands for Scholarship Mentoring for Applicants Requesting Tuition Assistance Grants.
