The RSHS Alumni Scholarship Fund was established in 1989.  

The Class of 1939, at their 50th reunion, collected money and donated funds to start the annual Alumni Scholarship award.  

Thanks to the generosity of RSHS alumni, two $800.00 scholarships were presented at the senior awards ceremony in May 2014. The following graduates received awards:

Brittany Josephine Craig - daughter of Jon (Bub) Craig and Helen Marie Gifford Craig (both from the Class of 1979). Brittany is attending Cecil College majoring in Elementary Education ($800.00).

CheyAnne Rose Bigley – daughter of Timothy Bigley (Class of 1982) and Shawn Edwards Bigley. CheyAnne is attending Eastern University majoring in Music Education with a minor in Music Performance ($800.00).


The Rosser Scholarship, in memory of Thomas and Mary Rosser, was established in 2002 by their daughter, Marcy Rosser Crowley (Class of 1976).

This $1,000 scholarship was presented to the following individual:

Joseph Austin Gorrell – son of Michael Barry Gorrell (Class of 1979) and Teresa Powers Gorrell (Class of 1980). Austin is attending University of Maryland Baltimore County and plans on becoming a History teacher.  

Each year the Alumni Association presents scholarship awards to deserving seniors graduating from Rising Sun High School.
