The Class of 2021 was awarded over $9 million in scholarships!!!





    Please submit completed scholarship applications one week prior to deadline to allow time to review and process materials to meet deadlines. If a recommendation letter is needed, please allow two weeks to process.  Request recommendation letters from your assigned counselor and/or teachers. MAKE SURE TO READ ALL DIRECTIONS ON SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS. Each scholarship is different. Some want them sent straight from the counselor, some want information submitted online, some want information submitted by the counselor, etc. Ms. Gilmer tries to specify how each application needs to be submitted on the main applications. It is very important to give counselors and teachers sufficient time to write recommendation letters & THANK THEM!!!
