PTSA Scholarships – Seniors, Plan Ahead!

Did you know the SHS PTSA awarded $10,000 in scholarships to our students last year? It’s true and we’re doing it again this year! Please note, the senior MUST be a member of SHS to apply. It only costs $5 and you can join at this Friday’s football game VS. Lassiter, join at Open House later this month, join online, or fill out our form and drop it off at the front office. Some things that may surprise you:
– Our scholarships are essay-based and have no GPA requirements
– All seniors who are PTSA members are eligible to apply including those participating in MOWR.
– There are no restrictions on how you can use the money. The student can use it to pay tuition at a technical school, community college, 4-year college, for books, meal plans, equipment such as computers and more.
– Our essay questions are judged by an outside panel who do not know our students or any information about their GPA, class rank, etc.
– One of our scholarships is community-service based. If you have completed 125 hours of community service and are a PTSA member you are eligible to apply!
Please keep all of this in mind and encourage your senior to join PTSA and apply for the scholarships later this school year. We’ll announce the application period in this newsletter, on our website, and through the SHS Counseling Office and morning announcements. There’s no excuse, every senior should apply!
