FHS Alumni Hosts Scholarship Fundraiser

Last weekend to place your bids for the Scholarship Fundraiser.The FHS Alumni Committee has for years offered scholarships to students graduating from Fayetteville High. Beginning last year the scholarships have continued to be awarded to Fayetteville students who attend Oak Hill or Midland Trail, and the Scholarship Committee plans to continue the tradition with your support.So what does that have to do with something fun to do in town?? Well, in an effort to continue to fund the scholarships, the committee reached out to local residents and artists for help. Old school desks, tables, and podiums were taken from the former elementary school and offered as a medium for artists to create something beautiful and unique… a piece of history from our school.As of today, these works of art are being distributed throughout our town at participating businesses, as notated on the attached map. Silent bids will be taken on each piece at each place of business up until September 21, 2020. All you need to do is go into the business, and place your silent bid in the envelope. We will be doing an announcement of winners following the conclusion of the silent bid auction. Keep an eye out on our page as we will feature each piece, give its location, and share a bio of the artist. Our hope is that not only will you be supporting future students through scholarships, but you will also be helping to support our local small businesses in Fayetteville. Plan a day, a weekend, or a month to visit our fabulous businesses. Give them your support and take a peek at the beautiful art that has been created to support our students. Help us continue to fund the scholarships for our future. May you have the highest bid!!!
