Each year Ms. Bell will distribute application packets to all seniors by April. The packet will include a copy of their transcript as well as a list of scholarships with due dates and submission details.

Prior to the packet being distributed the 12th graders will be forwarded all scholarships to their school email as they are received by the counselor. In addition to the student's email they can be accessed in the Google folder link above.
