Gus and Henrietta Hill Scholarship Fund

The Gus and Henrietta Hill Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance for postsecondary education to Duluth East High School graduates. The Fund was created through a bequest from Henrietta Hill in memory of her grandson, Roger C. Hill Jr.

Applicants must be graduating East seniors active in pole vaulting and/or music activities and nominated by East faculty. Applications must include a transcript (including standardized test scores), two recommendations and financial need documentation.

In 2000, Henrietta Hill established a scholarship trust fund as a memorial to her grandson, who attended East and participated in pole vaulting. He was also active in the school band. Henrietta Hill was a longtime resident of Duluth and recognized the importance of higher education. She felt that establishing a scholarship was a fitting memorial to her grandson.

Generally, awards are divided into spring and fall installments and are renewable for four years, assuming proper academic progress (GPA of 2.5 or greater) . Depending on the availability of funds, full-time summer school attendance may be awarded if sufficient credits are earned.
