Claire Elizabeth Crutti and Daniel Charles Arnold
Claire Elizabeth Crutti and Daniel Charles Arnold were named the newest recipients of the Hahnville High School Class of 1957 Anniversary Scholarships during the HHS graduation ceremony held in the John A. Alario Center in Westwego.
These $2,500 scholarships are awarded to students who will enter the Freshman Class at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. One $2,500 scholarship is for a student entering the educational field, to insure the development of teachers who will continue to promote the importance of education. The other $2,500 scholarship is for a student entering the engineering field, to provide a basis for continual technical contributions from Hahnville High School graduates. The two annual recipients will apply their awards to their freshman year at UL-L. The scholarships are in recognition of the excellent preparation that Hahnville High School teachers, coaches and principals provided for the class of 1957, and in recognition of the 1957 classmates who shared in that educational experience. These scholarships are awarded on an annual basis. This year marks the 54th anniversary of the HHS Class of 1957.
