Senior! Check your email for information about the The Paul and Jeannie Morris Education Scholarship. The Trust Scholarship can provide, at the trustee’s discretion, a full-tuition scholarship to pay for all post-secondary education expenses, including tuition, books, class materials, room and board, and related expenses for a graduating senior of Connersville High School or Whitewater Technical Career Center. Any financial award granted shall be reduced only by State and Federal aid that the student is reasonably entitled to (so long as such aid does not have to be repaid). Applicants must meet ALL of the following eligibility requirements to be considered for this scholarship: (1) Must demonstrate financial need (2) Must be a Fayette County resident (3) Must be a graduating senior of CHS or WTCC (4) Must plan to attend a college or university (2 or 4 year), technical school, or apprenticeship program (5) Must have an above-average GPA (6) Must possess a positive attitude, a desire to learn, and a strong work ethic
Shayla Crawford is the State Winner for both the Outdoor Recreation Proficiency Area and the Wildlife Management Proficiency Area. Proficiencies are approximately 20 page applications students fill out about their previous four years of career exploration through an agriculture program called a Supervised Agriculture Experience(SAE). Students first submit the application to the district level where it is scored and ranked compared to the 17 other schools in our district. If they win the district they are eligible for the 1st round at state where they are graded and ranked gold, silver, and bronze. The gold ranked applications are then resubmitted for another round of grading to decide the state winner. The state winners moves on to the national level where they compete against the winner from each state. Shayla will compete this summer in the National FFA Proficiency Contest with both the Outdoor Recreation Proficiency Area and in the Wildlife Management Proficiency Area. She is only student in the state to win in two areas this year. This is the first time in well over 30 years that any CHS student has competed in two areas and she won both! Well done Shayla!

• Spring Band Concerts CMS and CHS band concerts will be on Monday, May 10th. CMS Spring Concert will start at 6:00 p.m. in the CMS Auditorium. CHS Spring Concert will start at 7:30 p.m. in the Spartan Bowl • Spring Choir Concert Spring Spectacular Concert is Friday, May 14th at 7pm, in the REW auditorium • Seniors and Early graduates. PLEASE FILL OUT THE FAFSA, even if you do not plan to attend college. The State of Indiana is extending the FAFSA filing deadline beyond the original deadline of April 15, 2021. There is no set end date for the extension. Funding will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, so students are encouraged to file as soon as possible. Students can contact INvestEd at 317-715-9007 or email email@example.com for assistance in filing the FAFSA. Filing the FAFSA is one of the most important steps in the college-going process and can help students and families better afford college and other higher education opportunities. Students must have a current FAFSA on file to qualify for state and federal financial aid and many merit-based scholarships also require a completed FAFSA. “With over $350 million available in state financial aid each year, Indiana is committed to making postsecondary education affordable for all Hoosiers,” said Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers. “But students and families must file the FAFSA for consideration and by extending the deadline, we can make sure more Hoosiers can access financial aid.” There is no set date for the deadline extension and limited funding will be released on a first-come, first-served basis. It is critical for students or families who were not able to file by the original deadline to file quickly. The extension applies to Indiana’s financial aid programs, including the 21st Century Scholarship and the Frank O’Bannon Grant. (There is no FAFSA deadline for Hoosiers applying for the Next Level Jobs Workforce Ready Grant.) https://studentaid.gov/ • Summer School Summer School (Parents, Please insure that your student attend if they failed classes this year, or if they took classes online and did not get 14 credits!)
