Outside of the School Counceling Office is a huge wall of important info for you to check out from time to time; such as
College Visit Dates, Testing Info and Scholarship Information. Please become familiar with this area so you
don’t miss out on something you are specifically interested in.
You will have many Scholarship opportunities throughout the year.
The major Scholarships-Lilly (Mid August), Decatur County Community Foundation (early January) and
Locals (early March) will be announced when they become available.
However, there are many others that will be posted on
the Scholarship Board and School Counceling website (Scholarship Information) as they become available.
Stop by often and check it out!
