Scholarship Donations

The 50th reunion committee decided, with the help of a counselor at West High School, to help students who cannot afford the tuition or materials they need in order to go to a trade school or job apprenticeship. This may include books, special clothes or boots, etc.

  • Last year the Class of 1971 was able to provide 3 - $500 scholarships.
  • We would like to give at least 4 - $500 trade career scholarships next year.

YOU can help this year with just a phone call! See the Donation Center tab at the left, for all the ways you can help Wichita West High 2022-2023!
