Scholarships and Awards

There are scholarships available for which seniors can apply that have been really involved with community service.

Most applications will ask how the student has served their community, how the student has taken a leadership role with service or initiated an activity and how the student plans to continue service in the future. Applications will be uploaded to this site and be available in the College Center as they become available.

American Citizenship Award

This certificate is awarded to PHS students on Honors Night. Students can earn this award by:
