Dear Raiders,

My name is Ms. Gonzalez and I am the new Scholarship Counselor at SOH. I am so excited to be working with you guys! Thank you for working so hard during these first weeks of Distance Learning. 

Applying for scholarships is a wonderful opportunity to earn money for college! As you start your search for scholarships, I hope you will find the following attachments helpful(pages 8-18) :
