Class Scholarship Challenge

Many alumni were able to attend YHC because someone cared enough to provide them with financial assistance. Now, they have the chance to pay it forward—while also engaging in a little friendly competition!

Alumni from across the generations are rallying together to help deserving students attend their alma mater. Sixty classes participated in the 2014-2015 challenge, and 24 surpassed the $1,000 goal. More than $92,000 was raised—an increase over last year's total.

The scholarships are awarded every fall to current and incoming YHC students. Whether you just graduated or it's been a few years since your days at YHC, you most likely received some form of scholarship or financial assistance, and this is a great way to give back and pay it forward. By making this commitment, we can promote unity and spirit within each class while helping current and future students benefit from the same outstanding experience you enjoyed at YHC.

Organized by Class Coordinators, the Class Scholarship Challenge encourages each alumni class to raise $1,000 or more each year for student scholarships. There is power in numbers—if 100 members of your class give just $10, your class has reached its goal!

New for 2016!

We've introduced a new interactive website dedicated to raising funds for the Class Scholarship Challenge and fostering spirited competition between the classes. This crowdfunding effort will be most successful if alumni take the time to share updates on social media and through email. Visit classchallenge.yhc.edu to learn more.

For more information and the latest updates on the Class Scholarship Challenge, contact your Class Coordinator, or contact Director of Annual Giving Kara Perez, '05, at (706) 379-5173 or krperez@yhc.edu.
