Dear Seniors,

Hello!

We want to let each of you know we miss you greatly! Your counselors, college transition coach, and school social worker are still here to help you - virtually! Please reach out if you need anything, have questions about next steps after graduation, or just need to talk! (CONTACT INFO)

Scholarships are still available. Most deadlines are quickly approaching - so hopefully you all will apply soon! You may email completed applications/essays to me at julie.gallman@dalton.k12.ga.us or drop them by the front office at DHS by the deadline. Feel free to email me with any questions!

Make sure to have someone proofread your essay and application before submitting it. There is a lot of scholarship money at colleges/universities through the institution and/or foundations. If you want to know if the college you have applied to has scholarships, search for the scholarship site on your college/university's website. Many institutional scholarship processes are different. Pay CLOSE attention to deadlines for admission applications and scholarship application deadlines. Don't let the money run out before you decide to apply!

Good luck!!

Ms. Gallman
