SCHOLARSHIP ALERT: THE 2015 ELKS MOST VALUABLE STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP
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, four THS students earned a total of $2,300 from the local and state Elks organization. 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. One of the most time consuming elements of applying for scholarships is compiling all of the information, but working on the Elks Scholarship will give you a jump start.
Beginning Tuesday, October 7th, I will offer a Scholarship Workshop during Tuesday CIS to assist students with this scholarship application, as well as answer any other scholarship questions you might have.
More information about the scholarship is available below, as well as under the calendar tab.
