Red Rock Central Student Honor Loan Chapter
 


Student Honor Loan & Scholarship Application
 

 
History:  The Student Honor Loan Chapter originally began over 35 years ago as a Dollars for Scholars chapter. During this time, Frederick Sahr, a 1927 graduate of Lamberton High School, donated additional funds to assist future graduates.  Since the beginning, 400+ graduates have been awarded over $300,000 in loans and scholarships.  Over $150,000 has been paid back into the fund, which allows future graduates the same opportunity.

Mission:  Assist Red Rock Central graduates with financing post-secondary education.

Funds:  The Student Honor Loan is funded by donors – individuals and businesses in the local area, former graduates, and by the repayment of loans that are awarded to students.

How it works:  Graduates are awarded an interest-free loan.  Parents/students sign a repayment agreement that the money will be repaid once the student completes their education and enters the workforce.  Monthly payments are acceptable.

The amount that is awarded to students each year depends on a number of factors, including the number of honor loan requests, and the financial status of the Student Honor Loan accounts. When funds allow, the students are also awarded a Fredrick Sahr Memorial Scholarship, which does not need to be re-paid.

If a student is awarded an honor loan, they are also then eligible for another loan once they are in their 3rd year of college. Students must have completed 5 semesters, and be enrolled for the 6th semester before requesting additional funds.


Committee Members:  The Student Honor Loan committee is made up of members representing all 4 communities in our Red Rock Central district.
