THIS IS OUR STORY, AND WE ARE STICKING TO IT....
In 1994, Bob Steele stopped by the Cloverdale School administration office intending to leave a donation to cover some family expenses from many years ago. Mrs. Terri Bailey, the office secretary, insisted that he meet with the Superintendent, Steve Wittenauer, before leaving. From that meeting, the Cloverdale Scholarship Fund was started for Cloverdale Community High School. Al Tucker and Dr. Keith Ernst joined the effort, along with Bob Gerlach, owner of Clover Meadows golf course. That group started a golf tournament in memory of Chad Tucker and Brad Gerlach, and that annual tournament has been a major source of scholarship funds. Since then, hundreds of parents, current students, alumni, families, businesses and concerned citizens have contributed time and money to this fund.
In 2004, the Cloverdale Scholarship Fund became an affiliate of Scholarship America, and became the Cloverdale Community Dollars for Scholars. The benefits of affiliating with Scholarship America included many organizational resources, along with the benefits of having Collegiate Partners and Matching Partners. Collegiate Partners agree to not reduce grant assistance from the institution for the amount of the scholarship, so the student truly receives the full benefit of the scholarship. Matching Partners do the same, plus they agree to match some of the scholarship monies. Most of them will match up to $500, so the student gets an additional benefit.

AS OF 2014, CLOVERDALE COMMUNITY DOLLARS FOR SCHOLARS HAS PRESENTED OVER $285,000 IN SCHOLARSHIPS TO 351 CLOVERDALE COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES.
