Centennial Elementary administration, faculty and parents are pleased to award one $1,000 merit-based, non-renewable scholarship to a Centennial Buffalo alumnus continuing to ‘explore frontiers of excellence’ with ‘great courage’. The 2024 Brave Buffalo Scholar will be an inspiring example of living out Centennial’s Creed. This annual PTO-funded scholarship, first awarded in 2023, was established to encourage both Centennial alumni and current students to believe there is ‘no limit to what they can achieve’.
