    Good Morning Huskies,

    There are too many scholarships that deadline this week to be able to send them in a remind text, so I am sending you this sheet.  Remember that all of these scholarships are in the “Special Application Google Folder” on the Career Center website and need to be downloaded and saved to your computer before you fill them out. 

    Also, YOU need to print and mail these applications yourselves.  Unless it states otherwise, you are ok to fold them and put them in a regular envelope.  Be sure to include all the items required.  Read the application carefully to see if there are any additional Essays or Letters of Recommendation needed.

    If you have questions, feel free to text me on Remind, email me or message me on Facebook. 

    Good Luck guys

  • Good day Huskies, 

    Well, it has been a very trying couple of weeks since we have been together as a school and I want to just let you know that I miss you all very much.  

    I hope that you are all taking this "Isolation" very serious!  I know that we get bored hanging out at your home alone or with your family, but we just gotta do it!  

    Just remember Huskies, if you need anything from me, please, do not hesitate to contact me and let me know what you need.  Whether it's something for a scholarship, a question about something you got in the mail or in an email, or...if you jsut simply want to chat.  I am here for you whenver you need.  

    You can contact me via my school email:

    or via Remind! 

    Or you can message me from the HW Career Center Facebook Page or Instagram page.  

    Stay Healthy, Stay safe!

    Love and miss my Huskies!
