Immediately following the Financial Aid presentation (7:20 pm), Mrs. Holder and Mr. Deavers will talk to junior parents about registration for rising seniors and college admissions. We look forward to seeing our junior and senior parents there.

 

The GE-Reagan Foundation Scholarship Program annually awards roughly 20 college-bound students who demonstrate exemplary leadership, drive, integrity, and citizenship with $10,000 renewable scholarships. For information, eligibility requirements, and an online application, visit www.reaganfoundation.org/scholarships. Deadline is January 8, 2015.

 

Seniors and senior parents: Please be aware that you must send your ACT/SAT score to the university or college to which you are applying from the testing agency! Also, if you are having questions about college admissions process or financial aid, you may have your questions answered by going to the Counseling Blog on the OMHS website, clicking on SENIORS and opening the link to the OMHS College Handbook.

 

GIVE ME FIVE OPPORTUNITIES

There has been some minor changes to the Give Me Five requirements this year. School hours can only be counted if it is working for an outside NPO or if it is for a community-wide fundraiser. If you have any questions, please ask your Social Studies teacher or email cdean@shelbyed.k12.al.us.
