Elementary & Middle School Scholarships

Elementary & Middle School Scholarships

In 1989, former Alumni Association President, Robert “Smitty” Smith who passed away in 2007, had the tremendous vision to create a scholarship for one deserving fifth grader in every elementary school in Polk County to be awarded annually.  Every year, Polk County elementary schools award these scholarships to outstanding students who show great potential and promise for his or her future.
