Important Announcements for Juniors

There is a program called "The Trunk Project" which is part of the "Go Beyond You" Foundation, that provides a trunk filled with new basic items needed for college dorm living to students planning to attend 2 or 4 year colleges. If you are on track to graduate in 2018 and planning to attend a 2 or 4 year college and are able to show need based on social and/or economic disadvantage, you qualify. You must complete a Student Information/Application form, which can be picked up in my office, and write a personal statement. It is your responsibility to return the completed information either by mail or email. If you qualify for the program, the foundation will mail you specific details of the program requirements which include, but are not limited to a copy of your college acceptance letter, proof of community service, copy of valid ID, etc.
