Congratulations class of 1951!
For nearly three months, the Norwood Promise has been working closely with the Norwood City Schools Alumni Association to raise money for the students of Norwood. We started the Alumni Challenge the end of June of 2016. After August 31st, we have raised $2,300! The winner of the challenge raised a total of $990.69! The winner: the Class of 1951!
The Norwood Promise would like to thank the Norwood City Schools Alumni Association and the following classes for making generous contributions:

All proceeds will go to the Norwood Promise Scholarship Fund. More details:
The Norwood Promise is a scholarship fund specifically for Norwood High School seniors. We are here to benefit long-term enrolled students in Norwood City Schools so that they may pursue a future through post-secondary education (including trade schools, private universities, vocational schools, etc.). With many jobs demanding a background in higher education, soaring student debt, and rising dropout rates, many students are being intimidated from pursuing necessary steps for a sound career.
The Norwood Promise is a last-dollar scholarship fund. This means we fund on top of scholarships already awarded to students. We are not competitive with other funds and support additional programming at Norwood to provide students of all ages a robust educational experience. Our goal is that all students graduating from Norwood will receive 100% of their tuition so they may pursue their future. We see this as an opportunity for increased residency in Norwood, higher property values, higher quality education, and higher income. Organizations, such as the Pittsburgh Promise, have seen income levels rise by 10%, graduation levels rise over 15% and see over $80 million go to students for a brighter future.
You can help bring this to Norwood as the first Promise organization in Greater Cincinnati. We are initiating a challenge to all alumni of Norwood to donate on behalf of your class! Your gift will go towards our scholarship fund to invest our students so that we can see a brighter future for Norwood.
