Keys to Success 2015

KTS-LogoSCHOLARSHIP ALERT:  KEYS to SUCCESS SCHOLARSHIPS

It is time for one of my FAVORITE Scholarship Programs, Keys to Success! Some of the best scholarships for THS students are local scholarships because there is less competition, and the KTS program offers 5 scholarships specifically for THS students. If you plan to attend Paul Mitchell, SLCC, TATC, UVU,  or WSU, make sure you apply for these scholarships!

Please note:  the KTS Scholarship for Weber State is new this year and the application requirements and deadline are different than the applications for the other colleges.

In order to apply for a Keys to Success Scholarship, you have to have a Key Card.  The Key Card not only allows you to apply for these great scholarships, you are also eligible for great prizes, participation in the KTS assembly, and a chance to win an ipad and/or a car.  Talk to a teacher or counselor about earning a Key Card, and get started today…time is running out!
