Dear Alumni and Friends of FHS,

In 1993, the Fredericktown High School Alumni Scholarship Fund was created with the goal of assisting FHS graduates reach their dreams by attanding a post-secondary institution.
 
Over time, the phrase "Freddies helping Freddies" has been coined to describe this effort. Annually, scholarships are awards to deserving FHS graduates.
 
As new gifts are received, the size and number of scholarships increases, giving more opportunities for Freddies to further their education.
 
Due to the generosity of the Alumni, this endowment will last forever.
