12 for 12.headerSCHOLARSHIP ALERT:  12 LOCAL SCHOLARSHIPS FOR OVER $12,500!!!

Hooray for local scholarships!  If you have put off applying for scholarships, now is the time to STOP!  Although many scholarship deadlines have passed, the best scholarships for THS students are still available…but not for long.  Besides scholarships from colleges and universities, local scholarships are your best best for winning a scholarship.  Why, you might ask?  First, the competition is less.  You are only competing with students at THS or students in the district.  Second, most (but not all) of these scholarships include multiple awards, which means that more than one student will be awarded the scholarship.

Last week I visited all of the senior English classes, with the exception of English 1010 because class was cancelled by the instructor.  I created over 150 scholarship application packets so that means most seniors have several scholarships that they should be working on.  If you did not receive a packet, please come to my office in the Counseling Center and I will create one for you.  DO NOT MISS OUT ON THESE SCHOLARSHIPS!!!

Here is some more information about each scholarship…most of them have been posted on the website for several weeks.  Please let me know if you have any questions or need help with any of these scholarship, and don’t forget to CHECK DEADLINES!
