Monday December 9th, 41 students were accepted to OSU at their on-site admission event here at McKay High School. A few even received $3,000 scholarships to OSU. Way to go Scots!!
Scholarships, scholarships, scholarships, that was theme of our family night on Monday. We had close to 80 students and family members show up and learn about the process for finding and applying scholarships. Special thanks to Lacy Tolle, from the Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC), who talked about having a strong personal statement and how with one application, students have access to over 600 scholarships! Mr. Brooks also did a fabulous job showing our community how to use the College Board Scholarship Search. We are very thankful for all of the staff, students, and families who make this possible!”
