Scholarship & College Information

Amber Harp, High School Counselor

Welcome to the College Information and Scholarship Information

I receive scholarship and college information all the time.

I will try to post them here and I always forward to the students school email. It is very important for them to check their email at least once a day.


I have updated the Counselor's Corner webpage. It includes a lot of information for graduation, ICAP, each class specific information, resources, etc.



Thank you,

Mrs. Harp
