Annual Scholarship Fund
Since 2003, the Soducs Chamber of Commerce has awarded over $18,000 to Sodus High School Seniors heading for 2- or 4-year colleges or technical schools.
At our annual Citizen of the Year Banquet, we conduct a raffle to raise funds for our scholarship fund. Each year businesses and citizens donate items to be raffled off. Students apply and submit essays that inform the selection committee of their intention to venture into a business related field, and 2-3 scholarships are announced in early June at the awards night at the high school.
One of these scholarships is been given in memory of Ernie Piekunka, a previously named Citizen of the Year, war veteran and a business owner in Sodus.
Our intention with this effort is to have our students consider bringing their business skills back to our area; its an investment in our future and aligns with our mission: Bringing People to Sodus and Business to your Business!
