ACT Profile

During February & March, I will be in classrooms with 8th-12th graders doing college & career planning. I do this through the website ACT Profile which is a website that has students fill out inventories, explore careers, majors, and schools that they may be interested in. Each grade has different components to complete, and if you would like more information on state requirements please visit this website or contact me with questions!

Scholarship of the Month

This month, I am featuring the Buick Achievers Scholarship which is a scholarship for Seniors who plan to enroll full time at a four year university planning on majoring in engineering, technology, design, or business with interest in the automotive industry. Students can earn up to $25,000 per year and the due date is February 29th. Please visit the website for more details. As always, the scholarship document is constantly being updated with new scholarships!
