Just added information on the Elks Foundation 2014 Most Valuable Student Scholarship Contest. This is a great scholarship that is offered on a local, district, state, and national level, with awards offered at the various levels. Last year, five THS students earned a total of $3,200 from the local Elks Lodge. One of the most beneficial aspects of this scholarship, is that it allows students to create an impressive scholarship portfolio that they can use throughout the upcoming scholarship season. I will be offering a Scholarship Workshop during Tuesday CIS to assist students with this scholarship application, as well as answer any other scholarship questions they might have.
More information about the scholarship is available below, as well as under the calendar tab.
