A girl can dream, right? Scholarships, scholarships, scholarships. Seniors who are going to college report that looking for scholarships is one of their biggest concerns. A scholarship is a form of money that students get to help offset the cost of college, and it does not need to be paid back. Lots of scholarships exist; some are online, and some are given out by businesses. According to the guidance counselor Melissa Hill, the easiest way to find scholarships is to just search for them online because many are out there and for lots of different interests. She also suggested checking college websites for scholarships given out by schools. However, Hill also said, “Be careful when searching for them online because if the website is wanting some sort of payment in order to fill out the scholarship, it is probably not a scholarship.” Several opportunities for scholarships exist right here in Le Mars. Lots of different businesses give out scholarships, and most of these scholarships have few requirements. Other scholarships given out at LCHS are the Foundation Scholarships. The LeMars Community Schools Foundation was established in November 1991. The Foundation “is in place to serve the school district in soliciting resources that will enhance the educational opportunities for all students.” According to Lisa Eisma, 17 people make up the Board of Trustees, including Kelsey Langel, President; Joe Sitzmann, Vice President; Steve Webner, Secretary; and Denise Anthony, Treasurer. From 1993-2017, the Foundation awarded over $875,000 in scholarship monies to graduating seniors. Foundation scholarships awarded to seniors by Alyssa Hoebelheinrich Way to go, Seniors! Have happy lives!
