Each year, the SHHS Alumni Association selects a minimum of two graduating seniors to receive scholarships, based on a comprehensive scoring rubric which considers each applicant’s academic performance, work experience, community involvement, extracurricular activities, awards, financial need, special household circumstances, letters of recommendation, post-high school plans, and short essays written by the student.

Scholarships are funded by our Fall Fling and Spring Fling events, which bring together alumni from all 50+ years. Some say our Flings are like a mini-reunion, but for alumni of every class year at once, together.

100% of Fling cover charges and raffle item proceeds
benefit our Scholarship Fund.


The number of scholarships and dollar amounts awarded vary from year to year based on that year’s donated scholarship funds. If you’re unable to attend a Fling but would like to donate to our Scholarship Fund, please note that your donation should be designated for scholarships.

Thank you for helping us help Texans!
