Support our Students by Donating a Commencement Award to a Graduating Student  


 We are trying to replace some Commencement Awards that are no longer being offered at graduation.  Would you or your business like to give a scholarship to a deserving graduating student? A scholarship can be a one-time gift, or ongoing.  You can set the requirements based on need, achievement, career goals, effort or character traits.  The ODSS community has a strong tradition of helping students with their post-secondary education, but new scholarships are needed all the time to replace those that have run out.  Please consider offering a scholarship.  Any money amount is helpful and appreciated by the students. 

For more information please contact Kathy Trimble at or 519-941-0491, ext. 219.  Thank you for your support of our students.
