The West Shore Foundation proudly offers financial support and enrichment programs to enhance the educational experience for the students and teachers of the West Shore School District.

As the worldโ€™s industries develop and grow, the importance of higher education and trade skill learning will increase in the coming years. For students planning to further their post high school career education, achieving this level of education means an ever increasing reliance on scholarships.

The Best Friends Day Care Early Childhood Education Scholarship has been generously established by the Norris family. This scholarship is a $2,000 award for both 1 Cedar Cliff High School senior and 1 Red Land High School senior pursuing further education and a career in the early childhood education field. Applications are due no later than April 15.

Please visit the West Shore Foundation website to view the other generous scholarships and for more information on how to apply !
