Friends and Neighbors of Swannanoa (FANS) has established a Swannanoa Community Service Award for Owen High School students. The award will recognize an Owen High graduating senior who has made a significant contribution to the Swannanoa community through service. The award recipient will receive a $500 gift that will be applied directly to the student’s post-secondary education school account.
If you would like to help support this new initiative, send your donation to FANS at P.O. Box 697, Swannanoa, NC 28778. Please write “Owen High Senior Award” in the memo line of your check. You may also click on the blue link below to make a secure donation through Paypal. FANS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization; if you provide your address, you will receive a receipt and thank you note confirming your donation. FANS would love to recognize as many qualified students as possible. With each additional $500 raised, another award can be given.
Students receiving the award will be recommended by faculty and staff of Owen High who are aware of the student’s community service activities. School counselors will provide input regarding service and post-secondary education plans. Students interested in being considered should inquire with the counseling department of Owen High School. If you would like to recommend a graduating senior who has served the Swannanoa community, please contact the counseling department at 828-686-3852.
Your donation will help inspire our students to give back to their community through service, while also assisting them in pursuing their post-secondary educational goals. The award(s) will be given at the Senior Awards Banquet in May; donations must be received no later than April 30. Thank you for your support!
