Every spring, DHS PTA offers scholarship awards to students graduating and attending Davis Senior High School. DHS PTA values DHS's diverse campus community and would like to acknowledge student contributions that fostered our community or improved the high school experience of one or more DHS students. The students' contribution may involve service or support of others in our high school community or other actions that foster community spirit, awareness or growth. Financial need and U.S. citizenship are not required. Our goal is to recognize as many students as possible. Submission material can be either traditional (e.g., personal statement essay or story), there is no word count requirement or more creative formats (song, dance, poem, TikTok video, etc.).
Graduating 2023 seniors were asked to respond to the following prompt:
Dear 10th grade self, Here is what I want to tell you about my high school experience, and what I have learned. I hope that it will help you navigate DSHS….The 40 seniors shared valuable advice for all DHS students in the form of videos, poems and essays. PTA is grateful to be able to share their words of wisdom and wish them the best of luck in their next endeavors!
In 2023, the PTA 10th/11th grade student stipend is being used to further the legacy of the Thong Hy Huynh. As part of the Memorial revitalization efforts, PTA is asking students to submit applications that address how they understand and can promote the values of diversity, social justice, and equal rights in the DHS community.
The10 underclass students submitted plans to fund various groups on campus from a new Unity Club to the previously established Empower Youth. PTA is thrilled to be able to support a variety of student interests at DHS.
