College Readiness News and Events

FALL 2021 EDITION

We are looking forward to an amazing fall semester filled with Instant Decision Days, college admission presentations, FAFSA workshops, college application workshops, senior parent meetings, scholarship search parties, college acceptances, scholarship offers and much more! We plan to keep the momentum going from the class of 2021. The LEHS graduating class of 2021 reported college acceptances to over 125 colleges and universities across the country including Swarthmore, Tulane, Wake Forest, NYU, Howard, Baylor, TCU, The University of Texas at Austin, Texas Tech University, and Texas A&M University. Several students reported offers for full tuition scholarships as well as full ride scholarships. As a whole the class of 2021 reported over 7 million dollars in scholarship offers.

As we begin a new school year I am eager to work with a new group of seniors who have some of the same goals and aspirations as the last group. College admissions requirements are changing, scholarship criteria is becoming more competitive and deadlines are moving up. With that being said there is much work to be done, so join me in our "quest for success" in 2022. I hope to see you in my office frequently, at all of our college readiness events and following me on social media. Please make note of some important information I have listed below and bookmark my webpage to stay up to date on new events and programs that will be added throughout the semester
