2013 annual phone-a-thon a success

Students from Vestal Senior High School raised more than $13,000 by calling residents in the district throughout the day Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 9 and 10, during the organization's largest fundraiser of the year.

Vestal Dollars for Scholars annually distributes more than $65,000 in scholarship awards to graduating seniors who live in the Vestal Central School District. Since its inception in 1990, the organization has awarded close to $1 million in scholarships.

The phone-a-thon generates support of the organization's goals to help ease the burden of paying for college for students of varied abilities.

In addition to money raised through the phone-a-thon and other fundraisers, special scholarships may be sponsored by individuals, organizations or businesses in the form of one-time memorial awards, multiple-year awards or endowed funds to award scholarships every year.
