This year, a total of $4,362,092 in scholarships was awarded to graduates in Ridgefield High School’s Class of 2021. The figure, tallied by the school’s High School & Beyond office, comes from awards information reported by RHS’ graduating seniors.
While the majority of the scholarships were awarded by colleges and universities that the seniors plan to attend, many awards came from local organizations whose generous assistance each year help to finance the post-high school endeavors of many RHS graduates. “Our students are very lucky to have the support of such an amazing community,” said Amy McKenna, High School & Beyond program coordinator.
