Scholarship Updates

GUIDANCE OFFICE:
Pocomoke High School’s annual career exploration event, “Boomerang 2017,” is set for Friday, April 28th. As mentioned in an earlier Involver, this year we will have a “Boomerang” career exploration event where former graduates and local businesses are showcased. The theme of the event is “Learn, Fly, Return” based on the concept that our presenters have learned here at PHS, have flown to find their own success in their careers, and are returning to share their experiences with our students. Examples of some of the businesses/occupations that are scheduled to attend are Sysco, Perdue, XO Beanery & Bites, DNR, Maryland State Police, Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, Hickman’s Heating & Air Conditioning, Department of Juvenile Justice, school nurse, Simply Sublime Massage, computer IT specialist, Human Resource officer, Bank of Ocean City, WBOC and many more. The month of April is a very busy month for scholarships. Many, many scholarships are available and due during this month. Listed below are scholarships that are available now for the Class of 2017. They are also located on the guidance page on the school’s website (www.pocomokehighschool.org), in the Scholarship Drawer located in the guidance office, in the holders on the Scholarship Wall outside the guidance office, and on Twitter. Always make sure you follow directions on the scholarships, and please meet all deadlines promptly. There are numerous opportunities to supplement funding for college! Don't delay and if you need help, please stop by the guidance office and we will be happy to help you. Good luck and remember the Scholarship Guarantee: “If you do not fill out a scholarship application you are guaranteed NOT to get any money for college.”
