Over 30 years of scholarships given.

In 1981 Betty Graham, Judy Saxon and Barbara Scarbrough founded the Saraland-Satsuma Community Education Advisory Council, Inc. to fund scholarships for Satsuma High School seniors. They solicited community leaders from the cities of Saraland and Satsuma to help with fund raising and service activities. The first scholarship in 1981 was a one time $250.00 scholarship. Later the scholarship was increased to a one time $500.00 scholarship. Now we give a $2000.00 scholarship spread out of a four year period. $500.00 is given after each completed college year the student maintains a minimum of twelve credit hours and a 2.5 GPA. Starting in 2012 we serve two high schools: Satsuma High School and Saraland High School. At least one senior from each school will receive a $2000 scholarship. A number of years ago we started investing donations and fund raising money so the interest earned would be a perpetual source of scholarship funding. That fund has grown to over $100,000 and produces $3500.00 per year in interest. One half the interest is invested to help grow the principal and one half to fund scholarships. No money is used for administrative salaries or fees. 100% of donated money goes to scholarships. Thank you Betty, Judy and Barbara for starting a program that is helping young people achieve their dream of a college education.
