What's NEW and DUE in January




Pay careful attention to deadlines – DO NOT be late – it is your responsibility to have all application and scholarships materials to the intended institutions by the stated deadlines (pay attention if it says received by or postmarked by).  Also, check under the website www.laurel.kyschools.us; North Laurel High; Guidance; 12th grade; and Local, state, and national scholarship opportunities for a complete listing of community scholarships and deadlines.  For additional scholarships, you can do the Scholarship Selector on your ILP or go to www.fastweb.com for a large list of available national scholarships.


To request a transcript for a college, go to www.laurel.kyschools.us; North Laurel High; Guidance; and request a transcript (in the middle of the page).  This will send me an e-mail and I will forward it to the requested parties.


If you need a transcript for community scholarships, please stop by Guidance and ask Mrs. Young, Records Clerk.
