Through the generous efforts of previous graduates, the Harrisville High School (HHS) Alumni Scholarship Fund was established for the benefit of Ritchie County graduating seniors. The scholarship fund was kicked off at the 2000 HHS Alumni dinner. Scholarship awards are given to students who reside in Ritchie County, who are enrolled in Ritchie County High School, and are planning to attend a post-high school educational institution in the upcoming academic year. Recipients are selected on the basis of academic promise, good character, good citizenship, and financial need.
