Senior Awards Grant

“For the past six years, AEF has generously covered the majority of expenses for our annual Senior Awards Day at Albany High. You have been very generous in the past and we are extremely appreciative of your efforts on behalf of all Albany students.”

~ Sally Benjamin, Albany High Counseling Department

The AHS Senior Awards Day reminds us how fortunate we are to live in Albany and have such a superb education system, pre-school through 12th grade, for our children. Each year in June we are reminded of that fact when Albany High School holds it Senior Awards Day assembly.

At this momentous gathering of students, teachers, administrators, and families, the closing year of another group of AHS seniors is celebrated with presentations of numerous and diverse awards garnered by so many Albany students as they prepare to leave the Albany Unified School District and embark on the chosen paths that will lead them into adulthood. It is always a wonderful experience to witness the many Albany students whose wonderful accomplishments are celebrated that day. Awards and scholarships are presented in academics, sports, music, arts, and much more.

The Albany Education Foundation is pleased to make a special grant each year to the Albany High School Counseling Department to make this event happen, and make it a special occasion for all involved. If there is one culminating event each year that signifies the value and rewards of our city’s school system, its teachers, administrators, and staff, this would be that event.
