College Acceptance Letters & Scholarship Offers

posted Nov 7, 2017, 2:24 PM by Keri Miles

Students - 

Please keep a record of all college acceptance letters and scholarship offers you receive this year.  At the end of the year, you will be required to complete an exit summary in which you list all of this information.  We will want to know the total scholarship amount each of you has been offered (from all colleges, scholarship organizations, etc.).  The graduating class of 2017 received $25.4 million in scholarship offers.  I think this year's graduating class can do even better!
