Southport High School Alumni Association will celebrate 25 years of scholarship giving next month. Beginning in the early 90s, Mrs. Cindy Bertram determined that a program should be created to provide scholarships, given by alumni of Southport High School, to worthy seniors. The program has evolved each year until the present time, and the alumni this year will award $64,000 dollars to 66 deserving seniors.
They will be honored at a banquet at University of Indianapolis on May 20, 2016. This year the organization will also celebrate the selection of Peg Warner as the 2016 Alumna of the Year.
