Below are 3 of the many grade school recipients “Thank You” letters received at the PUHS Alumni district office.
The selections below are from ones also printed in the January 2013 Coyote Journal.
“Thank you for the contribution that you
have awarded me with. It means a lot to me
to know that there are people out there who
care about our education. With this money I
will be able to buy books that are necessary for
my education. I will also have the opportunity
to buy clothing with my school logo and
show my school spirit. Thank you. I really
appreciate it.”
“What can I do with $200? A lot of things.
$200 will help me buy supplies that I need.
For example I want to buy a t-shirt to show
my BHS spirit. Since we really don’t have a
library, I can buy books. This also helps me
with fees so that I will not get stressed out over
“Thank you so much for the Alumni
Association award! I greatly appreciate it.
These monies will come in handy one day. I
will be able to buy a yearbook every year now
– memories are very important. Certain events
may happen that require a fee and thanks to
this award I will be able to pay without using
my pocket money. Thank you so much. High
school is going to be great! Thank you so
much for your contribution.”
                                               – Ulysses The Phoenix Union High School Alumni Association appreciates all the many “Thank You ” letters that are received from the many 8th grade school student recipients.With warm regards for a most rewarding continuing education from the PUHS Alumni.The Phoenix Union High School opened in 1895. The last class year was in 1982.

Dee Grimm, PUHS Alumni 1st VP, signing the Scholarship Certificates at the PUHS district Alumni office. They were then sent to the various grade school during that month in 2012. Approximately seventy-eight are sent each year of the school year.



The PUHSAA does not tell the grade schools how to select the honorees.  They use their own criteria for that determination.  The student takes the certificate to the bookstore when starting at a District High School and the bookstore notifies us to send the check.  The scholarship is only valid at a District High School and not a charter or parochial school or a public school out of the Phoenix Union High School district.
