Please don’t forget to encourage seniors to apply for the Horatio Alger Scholarship. It is my understanding that many counselors did not receive their annual notification from the association. Those that did may have received it late because the mailings were sent at a non-profit rate. I have contacted the association and they tell me that next year they will consider mailing at a first class rate.
Through the generosity of the American Electric Power Foundation the Horatio Alger Association is pleased to be able to offer a state scholarship program in our state for the second consecutive year. Students who apply will be considered for both the national scholarship and the state scholarship program.
Last year six students from West Virginia were awarded $5000 each. Students should apply online at www.horatioalger.org/scholarships. The deadline to apply is October 30, 2011. Essays are required so students need to get started ASAP.
If you have questions please contact me. My cell phone number is 304-541-0666. I am currently working as a substitute counselor for Sarah Barnes at Hurricane High. My number at Hurricane High School is 304-562-9851 ext 208.
