BBB Students of Integrity Scholarship

Better Business Bureau Serving Wisconsin awards scholarships to Wisconsin high school students who have demonstrated character, leadership, and ethical values. The scholarships are awarded for post-high school education at any Wisconsin-based accredited college beginning in the fall of 2022, including community colleges/technical colleges. Rather than focusing on grades or extracurricular activities, the BBB scholarship is primarily based on an essay that must convey how the student has experienced and dealt with an ethical dilemma. As the scholarship recipients pursue their careers, BBB Serving Wisconsin hopes to develop future business leaders who will promote ethics in the Wisconsin marketplace.

High school seniors can apply:

Freshman PE Health Sessions

During the freshman PE9 Health sessions (January 6 and January 7, 2022), the School Social Worker and School Psychologist will guest speak to teach students about mental health and how to seek help if they are worried about themselves or a friend. They are using a program called SOS Signs of Suicide. The program teaches students about this difficult topic and encourages them to seek help.

Parents, please read this letter to learn more about the session. Click here to see the parent handout.

College and Scholarship Application Deadlines

Seniors - please make sure you are planning ahead for any upcoming college and/or scholarship applications. Make sure to submit your application and request your transcript on Xello or Common App at least 3 business days prior to any deadlines. Note that the FHS Student Services Office will be closed for winter break, so any applications with January 1 deadlines must be requested by December 20. Requests can take a few business days to process, so do not delay. If sending ACT or SAT scores, remember to request test scores directly from the test agency. If students need to request letters of recommendation, at least 2 weeks of time prior to any deadline is recommended. See the FHS Counseling website for more information and instructions on how to request your transcript on Xello and, as always, contact your counselor with questions.
