NOTE FROM MRS. YOUNG: While the actual process of applying for financial aid and scholarships primarily takes place senior year, developing an understanding of the process and what students can do from an earlier age helps make this process less stressful. Understanding what colleges and programs are looking for in the application process helps younger students value the importance of getting involved, completing community service and taking on leadership roles. I hope to see you on Thursday, October 15th for this very informative presentation about what our students need to be doing and how we can assist our students seek out financial aid opportunities. The Get2College Center will be here to present the workshop.
