Each year, through the generosity of its alumni, the Alumni Association awards its Bobbie Raymond Summer Enrichment Grant scholarships on behalf of current OPRFHS students to help them participate in exciting academic enrichment programs over the summer. Our first year, in 2003, we provided $3,500 to help five students participate in a Tropical Ecology Field Sciences course in Costa Rica.
Since that first year, we have awarded over $570,000 on behalf of 798 students. In addition, since many summer programs were cancelled due to covid-19 restrictions in 2020 and 2021, we awarded grants of $10,000 to OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS and $9,000 to the OPRFHS Theater Department for the 2021 Spring Musical. These allocations benefitted dozens of students.
Your SUPPORT will help fund enrichment opportunities for current students.

For summer 2022, a total of $26,600 was awarded on behalf of 19 students.
