HEF offers two scholarships in its name annually to Hilton High School seniors.

The Foundation also awards the Hilton Education Foundation Skilled Trades and Services Scholarship to a student who will further his or her education in skilled trades or services.

HEF was incorporated in 2006 to provide students with opportunities beyond what the school district can provide. These opportunities are geared toward helping students become self-directed, lifelong learners who think critically and creatively and function as caring, responsible, and productive members of society. Along with awarding scholarships, HEF supports the Cadet Cupboard and Principals’ Checkbook for students in need, and mini-grants to support new innovative classroom projects.

HEF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit led by a five-member Board of Directors that is comprised of volunteer members from the community, business and education, and is a member of the American Schools Foundation Alliance (asfalliance.org).

HEF also offers alumni tours of West Avenue (Quest) or Hilton High School for reunion groups. To schedule a tour, contact Pat Unterborn at punterborn@gmail.com or Grace Griffee at 585-392-1000, ext. 6105.
