During advisory today John Sloan talked about the GVEA scholarships http://www.gvea.com/inside/scholarship and some tips on applying and writing the essay. I also passed out a scholarship from the BBB Alaska http://akorww.bbb.org/scholarship/. This is based on a 3.5 GPA, integrity, and community service activities. I also passed out the UA systems scholarship application essay questions. I'll give students time during advisory during the next 2 weeks to complete it. Deadline is Feb 15th!

It's National College Application Week! Apply to any Univ. AK campus and enter to win an IPAD! Uaonline.alaska.edu
National College Application Week is a national movement to help students recognize the need to apply early to various colleges. The earlier application date allows students greater financial/scholarship opportunities, more choices of colleges and more time to prepare for their college freshman year.
During College Application Week, the University of Alaska, working with several high schools and counselors around the state, will be encouraging high school seniors to apply to at least one college. Our intention is to try and have someone available at each site to answer questions from students, and to help them with filling out applications.
Students applying for to the University of Alaska during College Application Week will be entered in a drawing for one of six iPads!

As we get further into the school year, and having less and less time in my actual office, I decided to use this platform to make announcement, interact with students and parents, and share important information with everyone. There is no promises that I will update this page on a daily basis, but I will definitely try to maintain this website to the best I can.
Please do take advantage of this virtual office. I look forward to hearing from you :)
