Retired School Personnel

CMRSP is proud to offer scholarships to graduating high school seniors and teacher assistants in CMS who are planning to enter the teaching profession. 

Application information is sent to guidance counselors and principals in December for distribution to students and assistants. Students and assistants are asked to provide our committee with an essay outlining academic achievements, leadership, extra-curricular activities, and financial need.

The CMRSP Scholarship Committee reviews all applications and makes the final selections.

The recipients, their families, and CMS staff are recognized at our May meeting. Funding for the scholarships is provided through memorials, honorariums, and member donations. Any memorials and honorariums will be recognized in the newsletter.

If you are interested in making a donation to the CMRSP Scholarship Fund, please send a check to:
