The Circleville City School Foundation recently awarded three “Make a Difference” Scholarships for the 2016-17 school year. The “Make A Difference “ Scholarship was established to encourage the pursuit of a post-secondary degree, certification or license for a Circleville High School graduate from the previous school year or earlier. These scholarships were made possible through the generosity of donors during the current school year and the success of the CCSF “Raise Your Paw” auction in February.
