Scholarship Notes
March 17, 2020

Class of 2020, 

Among so many questions, some of you are likely wondering how to proceed in terms of scholarship applications. As of today, there are 16 applications due between March 23 - April 2. Please continue to complete the applications, save them as PDF documents and return to me as email attachments along with any other documents requested on the application. Send only one application per email with the scholarship name in the subject line. I'm hoping this will help me keep things organized in this new to everyone process. 

Scholarship committees will meet in various ways and recipients will be selected. We are working to determine how best to present the scholarships and will keep you informed as those plans come together. 

Thank you and keep up the great work you've done throughout the semester in applying for the scholarships. Your work will be rewarded. I will answer questions as they arise as soon as I can. 

Hang in there, stay safe & healthy. 

Mrs. Stout-Rhine
OHS Local Scholarship Coordinator
