More than 15 years ago, this scholarship was formed in honor of Carolyn Atkachunas, a former Union School PTA president and active member of the PTA for many years, who passed away from breast cancer in 1996. Carolyn took education and learning very seriously, which we are sure was a result of her many years of teaching. However, she also strongly believed in being well-rounded and it was important to her that her children take part in various activities (such as clubs and sports).

The Carolyn Atkachunas Scholarship is awarded to a Rutherford High School senior each year at the RHS Senior Breakfast to a recipient who portrayed the values that Carolyn held near and dear to her heart. Previous award winners have been Honors and/or AP students who participated in a variety of extracurricular and community service activities throughout their high school career.

This scholarship has been given to an RHS Senior every year for over 15 years now, and only this past year did the original funding raised by the Rutherford community members run out.  We'd like to keep this scholarship going, and are asking for the community's assistance again in keeping this scholarship going for another 15+ years. 

Thank you in advance for your generosity.  As we all know the cost of college is only increasing each year, so every little bit counts to these high school Seniors.
