In April 1985, Phoenix Central School District Dollars for Scholars was created by a core group of community leaders interested in creating educational opportunities for area high school students.  Joanne Colbert was elected president, with William Battreall** as vice president; Neva Bibko as secretary; Cynthia Henderson** as treasurer; Barbara Moulton as publicity chair; Donald Generous as fundraising chair; and Ginny Granozio as awards committee chair. 

This grassroots effort has grown steadily from its humble inaugural year with 3 scholarships totalling $1,500 to more than $95,000 in total scholarship money granted to more than 60 graduating seniors.
