The basis of the program has always remained the same. The main objective has been to award as many scholarships as possible from local community groups to qualifying graduating seniors.

The process now includes all seniors and the counseling staffs at all of the MISD High Schools. It has expanded from two scholarships to over 117 scholarships and all are awarded each year to a student who is a graduating senior in the MISD.
