LOCAL SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION
All Local Scholarships will be awarded at the Senior Awards Night to be held towards the end of the school year, in the Ellen Ewing Performing Arts Center. Approximately two weeks before the Awards Night, seniors will be notified by letter if they will be receiving an award that evening. The Guidance Office will not be releasing the names of scholarship recipients before the Awards Night. Students who are to receive an award or scholarship but are unable to attend, will be able to pick up their award envelope the following day in the Guidance Office.

Please note two important things:
