EXETER — A Parent Scholarship Information Night will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7 in the Wyoming Area High School, 20 Memorial St.
Wyoming Area students in grades 9 through 12 and their parents are urged to attend.
Many of the scholarship are offered to seniors planning to attend an accredited post high school program to include but not limited to certificate programs, recognized professional training schools (sculpture, art, photography, etc), technical, trade and vocational schools, community colleges, as well as two and four -ear colleges/universities.
Six new scholarships are being added this year which are: Relaiable Van Transportation Scholarship, West Pittston Ambulance Scholarship, Wyoming Area Class of 2018 Gives Back Scholarship, Wyoming Area Lady Warriors Basketball Scholarship, Wyoming Hose Company #2 Scholarship, and Josette Yakobitis Memorial Scholarship.
The program will include a power point presentation highlighting the various scholarships offered to seniors on the school website. Also included will be helpful ideas on how to present a winning application.
Specific information will be shared; students/parents who have attended these programs in the past and who have taken the advice given and used it in the application process have been quite successful in obtaining scholarships offered to our seniors.
In addition this year a scholarship type fair will be offered where several donors will be on hand along with recipients and parents of recipients. Those in attendance can talk to all of these people and learn more about each scholarship and what the donors are specifically looking for in possible recipients.
The 10th Annual Scholarship Celebration will be held Thursday, May 23, 2019 in the high school gym to honor parents/recipients of the scholarships offered through this program along with honoring the donors.
