RJR's Alumni needs your help in sustaining their 4 on-going initiatives:The 'RJ Reynolds High School Alumni & Friends' organization has four on-going initiatives...and they are:** generating the funds needed to annually award two $1,000 scholarships to deserving graduating seniors.** generating the funds needed to annually award $1,000 to the staff member (selected by their peers) as the RJR Teacher of the Year.To see pictures of and learn about those students receiving scholarships and those staff members who have been selected as the RJR Teacher of the Year: click here ( * ).Note: the above two initiatives mean "RJR Alumni & Friends" has on-going annual disbursements in May of each year of $3,000. The ONLY way we can award the two scholarships and a Teacher of the Year award is for us to have received donated funds that total that amount or more.** supporting the expansion of the Demon Pantry into a corner room on the first floor that currently just holds student lockers. The renovation of this room will allow for refrigerators and microwaves to be added...which will allow for fresh fruits and vegetables to be housed there, and it will allow student access to uneaten breakfasts that were prepared by the school cafeteria. The school will use some of the 'Title 1' funds it gets annually to keep this room fully stocked. This renovation will cost $25,000. The RJR Alumni and Friends organization has already donated $2,500 towards the completion of this renovation.
