Sisters Graduate Resource Organization (Sisters GRO) supports community efforts aimed at helping Sisters High Students obtain their post-secondary dreams by fostering the development of community and private sector resources. In 2006 a handful of community members recognized the need for an organization with the sole purpose of supporting Sisters High School graduates with post-secondary education and vocational training. Sisters GRO helps our graduated youth embark with more than a high school diploma in hand – they will also leave with a scholarship representing their community’s belief in them.
The mission of Sisters GRO is to raise, receive and distribute charitable scholarship funds, support the scholarship selection process, and support graduate resource programs to help Sisters High School graduates obtain higher education or training.
Need for Scholarship Support
Our community is doing a great job of supporting the Sisters Schools in preparing our kids for college and in fact, 77% of SHS 2016 graduates enrolled in a two or four year univeristy or vocational program. As we witness the cost of higher education continue to climb, there is a heavy financial burden on the backs of our graduates as they pursue higher education and Career Technical Education (CTE). If you believe in the importance of higher education and have a heart for helping young people aspire to become more, here’s how you can help:
- Establish a scholarship in honor or memory of a friend or family member
- Donate to Sisters GRO Endowment for Dreams Scholarship fund
- Donate to an existing scholarship
- Make a donation pledge and/or incorporate a donation in your will or trust
- Donate to Sisters GRO, to help offset overhead expenses
