The SHLC/Pierson Scholarship Fund

From 2019-2022, the Sag Harbor Lions Club has awarded more than $130,000 in Scholarship Funds to Pierson Seniors.

Our mission is simple – we want to raise funds for college-bound Pierson seniors to help them and their families with tuition. The criteria for selecting our scholarship winners include academic excellence, teacher and community recommendations, a written essay, extracurricular activities, community service, and financial need. Our selection committee of five is chaired by Lion Mark Poitras, a Pierson graduate. 100% of your donation goes directly to the benefit of the student.

The scholarship program has been well received by the Pierson and Sag Harbor community. With your support, we will keep this community-based/community-funded program going.
