Hello Band Seniors,
Each year, the band booster club awards 5 scholarships to band/colorguard seniors. The application has been sent to Robin Finklea in the College & Career Coordinator’s office and should appear in Naviance soon if not already. You can find the application on this link: https://lhabc.files.wordpress.com/2022/02/2022-lhabc-scholarship-application.docx or lhabc.org/student information/senior scholarship application. Please follow the instructions closely and get your app turned in to Mrs. Finklea’s office no later than the March 23, 4:00 P.M. deadline. Late apps will not be accepted.
Pay particular attention to this requirement: “Solicit at least 2 letters of recommendation, including one from a high school or junior high band director or private lesson instructor, and a second one from someone outside of band who knows you well.” Please start requesting rec letters from teachers and other references NOW. Do not wait until the last minute as they get many requests and writing a thoughtful recommendation letter takes time. A last minute request on your part does not require an emergency response from those of whom you are asking a favor, especially if you want a heartfelt and favorable rec;)
