The Boosters are very proud to support all of our students whether athlete or fan. Since 2001, the Boosters have funded over $225,000 in grant requests and over $135,000 in scholarship awards. We are also proud to be able to say that 100% of your donation goes directly to support these grants or scholarships.

Most grant requests come to us through the Athletic Director and Coaches, however we have also received requests directly from students as well as other members of G-D community. Scholarship awards are made each Spring to graduating seniors. Our selection process recognizes athletic partipation, academics and community service.
