The Board of Directors reserve the right to increase the number of scholarships awarded to no more than three of $1000.00 each, provided sufficient funds have been acquired to fund the awards.

Prayer Breakfast

Highland Community Prayer Breakfast

Every year on the National Day of Prayer (the first Thursday of May), residents and businesses from Highland come to together to pray for our country, state and community.  Clergy from the area provide prayers and local choirs have helped us with this amazing community event.
