We have very little to do with the actual selection each year of our Scholarship Award winner, yet now for the 11th year in a row the TLSF has hit a 'home run' by selecting Molly Madden to carry on the tradition of excellence in education and leadership that our monies are intended to directly support.
 
Three cheers for Molly Madden!

The Class of 1969 Scholarship Fund
 
Growing up in the Sixties was an exciting time for members of the Terra Linda High School Class of 1969.
 
Young people across America wanted change, Class of 1969 members included. During their Terra Linda High School days, through interest and involvement, many class members affected positive changes. Now, as activists, artists, educators, entrepreneurs, inventors, lawyers, medical professionals, and such, Class of 1969 members continue to make an impact.
 
Consequently, the class members would like to positively influence the life of a current Terra Linda High School agent of change with the Class of 1969 Scholarship Award. In doing so, the Class of 1969 also honors the Terra Linda High School teachers, counselors, coaches, and staff members who provided such great inspiration to the class members.
 
The recipient of the Class of 1969 Scholarship Award must have, as a leader, demonstrated bold, innovative, spirited, and significant involvement in one or more Terra Linda High School activities, whereby affecting a positive change in a school program, organization, and/or class, while maintaining high academic achievement.
 
As the scholarship is to be used to defray expenses related directly to college, this is a need-based scholarship that will be granted to the student who demonstrates the characteristics of the Class of 1969 as outlined above.
