Mandatory Rising Senior Meeting

Thursday, March 17th @ 7pm

Final Opportunity to Attend

All Juniors are required to attend one Rising Senior Meeting this spring. The purpose of this meeting is to review the Senior Program and its requirements. Come learn how Crosby Scholars will help guide you through the college admissions process, into the student financial aid process, and finally through making the BIG decision.

To help parents/guardians understand and support the Program’s role in the college admission process, we encourage you to invite your parents/guardians to attend the Rising Senior Meeting with you. A parent may not attend in place of a student.

Thursday, March 17th, 7pm-8:30pm at the Randy Hemann Room located at 225 N. Main Street in downtown Salisbury (across from the Rowan County Courthouse and accessible from the Easy Street Walkway).

Scholars must arrive on time and stay for the entire meeting. Attendance credit is awarded to scholars when they complete their confirmation of attendance form at the end of the meeting. This is a program requirement. Juniors who do not meet this requirement will be dismissed and will not be eligible to participate in the Program during their senior year.

Rising Senior Meeting - D

225 North Main Street

Salisbury, NC

Parents are invited to attend with students.

RSVPs are enabled for this event.


IMPORTANT - At the end of the Rising Senior Meeting, you will have an opportunity to choose your own Senior Advisor or allow the Crosby Scholars program to randomly assign you an Advisor.

The Crosby Scholars Program requires each high school Senior to have an advisor. Your Senior Advisor meets with you throughout the school year to help you achieve your college enrollment goals.

Please discuss these two options with your parent/guardian regarding your Senior Advisor:

  1. SELF-SELECT A SENIOR ADVISOR. If you like, you can choose your own Senior Advisor! This person can be a parent, family member, family friend, or another adult in your life whom you admire. (Cannot be a HS guidance counselor.) Your advisor must be a high school graduate. The person you select must agree to be your Crosby Senior Advisor. (The Crosby Scholars staff will notify your advisor of the advisor application process and mandatory advisor training sessions. If your advisor does not attend a training session, you will instead be assigned an advisor from our pool of community volunteers.)
  2. BE ASSIGNED A SENIOR ADVISOR. If you do not self-select an advisor, you will be assigned a Senior Advisor from our pool of community volunteers. (You and your advisor will schedule individual meeting times throughout the school year based on your class schedule and you will be expected to attend each scheduled advisor meeting at your school, during the school day. You can reschedule a meeting with your Senior Advisor when necessary.)
