Hey, 8th Grade Tigers! 🐅 Toni Wiley, our representative for KHEAA (Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority), will be hosting a “Making The Most of High School” meeting for students and parents on Monday, January 24 from 5:30-6:15pm in the BHS Auditorium. The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority administers student financial aid programs including the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) and Kentucky Dual Credit Scholarship (DCS) programs. The KEES program provides scholarships to students who earn at least a 2.5 GPA each year they attend a certified Kentucky high school. The better they do in high school, the more they earn towards college.The transition from 8th Grade into high school is an exciting time, but can also be one full of questions and uncertainty. Parents and students are urged to attend this casual meeting where Toni will be sharing information and answering any questions you might have before entering high school. In the coming weeks, your child will be meeting one on one with our counselors for scheduling. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the next steps in transitioning to high school.
We hope to see you there!
