On behalf of everyone at Marathon High School, we would like to thank the community for their outpouring of support to our graduating class of 2010.
Marathon High School Class Night was June 1, and scholarships from local organizations were awarded to our graduating students. The financial generosity from local businesses and organizations was outstanding, and many students received scholarships to assist them in their educational pursuits. Of our graduating class, 80 percent of the students will be going off to college to continue their education, and 30 percent of those will be awarded the Bright Futures Scholarship.
When combining the Bright Futures, Athletic, Academic, Community Scholarships and all other scholarships, this group of students has earned over a million dollars in awards of which $100,000 was raised from our local community.
The teachers, staff, and administration would like to thank these clubs and organizations for the many hours of volunteering their time in raising funds and investing in the future of our students.
