Together We GIVE So They Can SUCCEED

In 1927, fourteen graduating seniors received their diplomas from the new Shawnee High School. In anticipation and celebration of the 100th graduating class from Shawnee High School in 2026, the first and only Lima Shawnee Alumni Legacy Scholarship Program has been established. Please join this opportunity to make a measurable difference in the lives of Shawnee High School students.

Home: Welcome

The Mission of the Fund is to award qualifying Lima Shawnee High School Seniors scholarships in all general areas of study: Arts and Humanities; Business/Vocational; Education; and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Additionally, the Fund oversees the process and awarding of Named Scholarships created by donors.

Scholarships are based upon submitted applications. Selection of award recipients are made by a volunteer committee comprised of donors, representatives of Shawnee Local Schools, and the Lima Community Foundation.

In May of 2023, the Fund awarded scholarships to eleven graduating seniors. To see the names of these outstanding individuals along with prior recipients, please click on RECIPIENTS in the Main Menu.

The Fund is open to receiving contributions from all sources, including Shawnee Alumni from all classes, as well as the community at large. For more information on the fund, the process, and how you can contribute to the success of SHS graduates, please visit all the pages of this website. Should you have additional questions, please email us at or click on the QUESTIONS? page above.


Home: What We Do


Legacy is something handed down from one generation to the next. Legacy is included in the name and structure of the scholarship with multiple opportunities to express appreciation and acknowledgement.

Each contribution to the Scholarship Fund may be made in honor or tribute to an individual or a group. If your family has multiple generations of Shawnee Alumni or multiple graduates you may consider multiplying your contribution by the number of generations or the number of family graduates and make a contribution to honor each member and each generation.
