A program that makes a difference to our students and community...
Designed to promote scholarship and community involvement while inspiring students to set college as a goal for their future, IMPACT Chandler Scholars (ICS) requires students to maintain a 3.4 GPA or higher, 95 percent school attendance and complete 100 hours of community service.
"ICS taught me how to manage my time between academics, between helping my community and between working. I learned to balance all of these."
-- Karen Noll, Basha High School
"Even after the 100 hours of community service I was still going out and doing more. I learned that you don't do service for the scholarships, you don't do it for the money, you just do it because you enjoy it."
-- Scott Brzuchalski, Chandler High School
"I would not have been the same person I am today if I had not done the community service involved with ICS."
-- Tyler Libey, Basha High School
"I would tell other students to enroll in ICS, no doubt about it, because it helps you be involved in your community, which is number one in life. It helps you build character and just become a better person."
-- Brandon Van Norman, Chandler High School
"This scholarship taught me that hard work pays off. All your dedication and responsibility to school pays off in the end when you get a scholarship like ICS. It made me want to try harder in order to meet the requirements."
-- David Cortez, Chandler High School
"Having to do the 100 hours of service really got me out into the community and made me feel so grateful for the things I have. It gave me another perspective on what I have to offer. I learned that helping your community and giving back is something you should always do."
