Twenty-one deserving graduates of Hemingford High School were the latest in a long line of HHS alumni to benefit from the Hemingford-Elliott Scholarship Foundation, when they were awarded 2019 fall under-graduate or Post Graduate scholarships during July.

This outstanding program that began in 1987 has provided college support for the past thirty-one years for graduates of Hemingford High School, including students that advance on the graduate degrees by awarding 417 scholarships since 1987, totaling $1,054,302 to help our students continue their education.
