Seniors & Parents
Scholarship opportunities are added to the scholarship page (found under Parent/Student Resources, go to the Counseling page) as they come in. Make sure you check the page periodically for scholarship opportunities or you may go to the Counseling office. There is an advisor from Kingwood College at THS every Thursday to meet with students. If you are interested in meeting with him, go to the counseling office and fill out a request to see him.
Seniors, if you are currently applying to colleges and need help with your essays, please stop by and make an appointment with Mrs. Padgett or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org for more questions and support. To be considered for the most scholarship monies given out by colleges, the applications' deadlines are generally the beginning of November or December. See your college's website for specific deadlines. If you haven't started your application yet, now is the time to do so at www.applytexas.org
