Reedies support each other generation after generation

Every year, young alumni pool their resources to award the Help A Reedie Out Scholarship, a need-based grant given to a new Reedie each fall. Since launching the scholarship in 2011, young alumni have raised over $68,000 for Reedies in need. Every penny donated goes straight to the scholarship—no exceptions.
