The Rocket Scholars Foundation began as a question:  "How can we increase the number of students who challenge themselves to higher academic achievement?"  After forming a committee of Reeths-Puffer Alumni and parents, it was decided that a scholarship foundation for students would be a commendable investment for all Reeths-Puffer students today and in the future.

Belief Statement:

High Academic achievement should be the goal of each student's education.  Scholarships rewarding these efforts will foster a culture of rigorous classroom experiences with high academic expectations.

April Anne Boss Scholarship


April Anne Boss copy


April Anne Boss graduated from Reeths-Puffer High School in 1997.  She was active in the choir and in many church related activities as she completed her high school years.


April chose to attend Muskegon Community College after high school.  She loved children and wanted to make a difference in their lives by pursuing a teaching degree in Elementary Education.


April was a loving daughter, sister and friend.  She was always willing to share a hug with people she loved and friends she knew.  Her parents would like her to be remembered and honored in a special way; therefore, they have established the April Anne Boss Scholarship in loving memory of their daughter.  Their wish is to help future Reeths-Puffer graduates as they pursue a college degree.
