Scholarship season info! There are a few "seasons" of scholarships you need to be aware of: 1) Start up season (NOW). There will be a few that trickle in before the holidays and you may qualify. 2) Jan-Feb = this is when you'll apply for the Knox County Foundation scholarships. This is a one-stop shop application for many (many!) scholarships. These are announced during the spring Senior Night ceremony. 3) March-May = This is the season of many local scholarships as well as a few other scholarships we see come in each year during this window. WHAT CAN YOU DO IN PREPARATION? *Make a list of all of your accomplishments (academic, community, athletic, etc.). It's easier to have it in one place for many applications moving forward. *If you have not done so already, ask a teacher or coach to write a letter of recommendation for you. This can be on your behalf as a whole, or it can be specific if needed. Waiting until the last minute to ask a teacher for this will not win you favors. Give your list of accomplishments to the teacher you have asked to write a LOR. This will help their memory in writing something great for you. *Make a copy (digital or printed) of all of the scholarships on the Scholarship doc 2023 seniors Read through all the options. Highlight those that make sense and start prepping. Most of these are similar each year so you should have an idea of what they want/expect. When they become available you'll be prepared to jump on it. Please let me know if I can help! Carey Ballinger High School/Middle School Guidance Counselor

Centerburg FFA Food Drive The Centerburg FFA Chapter will be conducting the 9th annual Brown Bag for the Hungry Program. We had a very successful drive in 2021, collecting more than 2,300 items and more than $150.00 for our local community! We could not have done that without your help. The instructions for this year’s program are the same as last year. If you are willing and able, please fill the brown bag we have left on your doorstep with any non-perishable food or toiletry items, and set the bag back out in a place that it can be seen clearly from the road on the pick-up date--Monday, November 21st. We will be around to pick up the bags starting around 10:30 that morning. We will be done collecting by 3:00 pm that day. We will do our best to collect all bags, but if we happen to miss your bag, please feel free to drop it off at the school at any time or please contact the school and a student will be by to pick it up. However, if you would like to make a monetary donation instead, please mail it to the address below or drop it off at Centerburg High School for Matt Weade. All collected items and money will go to our local charity. Every little bit helps! Please address mailings to the following address: Attn: Matt Weade FFA Advisor Centerburg High School 3782 Columbus Rd Centerburg, OH 43011 Thank you so much for your continued support of your local FFA Chapter as well as the Centerburg community.
