That was one word to describe the material covered today in Senior Success Seminar. Yes, there is LOTS of stuff to do during the Senior Year, but you have helpers and guides for aid you in your journey.
Sometimes, you will have to tell yourself over and over again that you can do it, but don't give up. You CAN do it!
Check your SENIOR 2020 folder for a copy of all the SCHOLARSHIP PROMPTS.
Here are some of the topics we discussed in Senior Success:
1. Your ACT--while it is ONE important part of your college admission/scholarship journey, it is not the ONLY piece of the puzzle. Your GPA (as well as taking Honors, AP, and Dual Enrollment Classes), Community Service, Upward Bound involvement, and leadership are also important.
2. Following this Blog--we added emails at the side of this page so you would get email notifications of when we update material. Check it (as well as following JLV Counseling blog). There are BUNCHES of deadlines and opportunities. STAY CONNECTED!
3. We got our first look at the Dell Scholarship Application Dell Scholarship and the Smith Scholarship questions. These are BIG. Start early and lets do more after the summer program ends.
4. For Senior females who have an ACT of 23 (or close to a 23), go to this website, Linly Heflin, to read about this scholarship. It's BIG, but you will find that the GOALS and All About Me will have you ready.
