Good Stuff to Know!

Class Rings: Josten’s no longer has a contract to sell SSVC class rings and therefore, they no longer have “…any custom molds with the name, symbol or school seal.” However, they do have designs that do not require custom molds. So, you can get a class ring from Josten’s but no longer the original class ring. Visit  Josten’s at or call 1-800-854-7464 ext. 17147.

Shippensburg University Scholarship: This scholarship endowment has been established to benefit former graduates of Scotland School and others related to a veteran. One former student, Deja Richardson, who was in 8th grade when SSVC closed, was selected to receive the scholarship.  Frank Frame, former superintendent and CEO, Foundation of SSVC was at the ceremony when Deja received her scholarship. Deja is a freshman at Shippensburg University with a major in Elementary Education and a Business minor.  Deja, you have made us proud!

SSVC Scholarships: When the Foundation of SSVC dissolved in 2012, Frank Frame, CEO and the members of the Board awarded the remaining monies to four educational institutions. They are University of Pittsburgh, Shippensburg University, Carson Long, and the Chambersburg Area Senior High School. A fifth organization, CORE, worked with the Foundation of SSVC. Its mission is to enhance residential education.  These organizations continue the legacy of Scotland School through their scholarship recipients and assistance to other residential educational institutions.  Thank you to Mr. Frame and members of the Board of the former Foundation of SSVC!


Sick Call – Fall 2013

The alumni listed below are in need of cheer from their Scotland brothers and sisters. You don’t have to be in their class to send a note or card. They would enjoy hearing from you because you are a Scotland kid. So, please consider getting in touch with one or more and share their names with others.

Also, if you know any alumni who could use some Scotland spirit via the mail or email, please let Sally know. Fill out this SSVC Sick Alumni Submission Form. Thanks.
