The Cause

The Importance

The Honor

The Benefit

Since 2003, the Students of Distinction program has honored over 400 graduating seniors from the Peninsula School District and provided nearly $200,000 in scholarships.

Investment in higher education generates significant social and economic returns that strengthen our communities and our nation. Higher education is an appreciating asset.

Beginning in April each year, The Peninsula Gateway features 6 weeks of vignettes highlighting the students’ accomplishments. In May, a banquet dinner and ceremony is held in honor of these remarkable young men and women.

Through the Students of Distinction Fund, everyone can join in building a permanent endowment to help guarantee the perpetuity and strengthen the capacity of this community scholarship program. Every dollar makes a difference.

The 15th annual community Students of Distinction Awards Banquet will be held at 6:30 p.m. on May 24, 2017, at the Chapel Hill Gathering Place.
