• A major component of our mission is to further education for Hoover students and  to award outstanding citizenship among Hoover students. To accomplish this, the Scholarship Committee interviews Hoover and Spain Park seniors each year and awards scholarships to deserving students with strong academic and service records. In 2018, $34,000 was awarded to deserving students. Included in the $34,000 was a grant from Jefferson County for $5,000 for students living in Jefferson County and a donation of $1,000 from HSC members for the Margaret Alford Community Service  Scholarships.

  • The Margaret Alford Community Service Scholarship is presented to one student from each high school for their outstanding  Community Service. These scholarships are provided by anonymous donors in memory of Margaret Alford. Margaret was a Hoover resident who during her lifetime exemplified the definition of community service through her countless hours of voluntary support to multiple organizations including Hoover Service Club, the Birmingham Symphony Decorator's Showhouse, the Hoover schools attended by her daughters, as well as St. Peter's Catholic Church.

  • To  further encourage academic achievement and citizenship, two students from each of the three middle schools - Berry, Bumpus, and Simmons -  receive awards  for academic achievement and community service.
