Grad Grams-Scholarships for GHS Seniors
Grad Grams are available for purchase for 2021 graduating seniors at all the Grafton schools as well as Ace Hardware. Grad grams are cards sent to congratulate a current Grafton High School Graduate. All grams created for a student are then compiled into a memory book for the graduate, to be handed out at the graduation ceremony. All proceeds for the Grad Grams go to the Grafton Community Scholarship Fund, which provides local scholarships to graduating seniors.
