First District Scholar Dollars
Campaign Gets Good Grade

Now that the first Scholar Dollars Campaign ended, I’m pleased to share some positive results. This fundraising effort to pay AP exam fees for economically disadvantaged students raised $2,365. This total will be distributed to benefit students on all five high school campuses.

Overall, the generous donations from the Mesquite community are enabling students across our district to take nearly 160 AP exams. Some students take multiple AP exams, so you can see how test taking can be cost prohibitive. But through Scholar Dollars, more students are able to reap the full potential of their AP class by taking the end-of-the-year AP exam.

If a student scores well on this comprehensive test, he or she can earn college credit. So what a great savings AP exams can offer! Thank you for supporting another great program made possible by our foundation.
