he Shasta Historical Society (SHS) is comprised of members with strong interests in history, especially Shasta County history. The society has a variety of functions, including: to house important historical artifacts and documents; to disseminate historical information to the general public and membership; and to encourage historical awareness. In addition, the SHS believes that it is important to identify and then assist future historical scholars and educators. For many years the SHS has provided college scholarships in an attempt to accomplish this goal.
Any senior attending a public High School in Shasta County or any Shasta College student is eligible to apply for the scholarships.
