For the past five years, the Helios Education Foundation has partnered with the Yuma Union High School District to award up to $60,000 per student for one student from each of the district's six campuses. The scholarship is known as the Ready Now Yuma Scholarship and is part of Helios' $3 million-plus investment over 10 years in YUHSD students. This May, six recipients were surprised with the big news in the form of balloons and a large check presented to them by their principal and counselor. The scholarship is worth up to $15,000 each year and can be renewed for up to three additional years, making the surprise announcement a life-changing one.
