Shop for Higher Education

Last year LHES won a $2,000 scholarship for a deserving senior in Foodland’s Shop for Higher Education program. Not bad for a school with no Foodland on the island! We hope that LACA members, LHES Alumni and supporters will help our alma mater win again in 2010.

Registration will run Monday, January 4, 2010 through Friday, January 22, 2010.  Shop for Higher Education will begin on Wednesday, February 10, 2010 and end on Tuesday, March 23, 2010.  The school code will be posted at each cashier station.

Thank you for your support!
