The Cassner Foundation Scholarship has announced the six winners of its 2022 scholarships.
The Cassner Foundation Scholarship was established by Mr. and Mrs. Alvin B. Cassner. At least six $3,500 scholarships are awarded annually to Highland County High school seniors. Scholarships are renewable for a four-year period upon evidence that a 2.0 grade point average is maintained.
