WELCOME TO VHS COLLEGE AND CAREER CORNER! My name is Barbara Brummett and I am the 2018-2019 College and Career Coordinator housed on the Venus High School campus in the counseling center. We are developing a college and career readiness program for K-12th grade. It's never too early to plan for, save money for, and begin looking at college or career pathways. Parent involvement is a MUST! Talking to your student about various careers and discovering their interests helps a student narrow his goal and take the courses along the way to better prepare for transition to post-secondary success. Begin a savings program - college can be expensive, but there are many resources for scholarships and financial aid so please never think that college is out of reach. Every student can find the funding to attend any college - including Ivy League and large Universities. Most universities have their own financial aid to ensure each student has the most money available. The Venus campus counselors, AVID teachers, and I are available for any questions you may have along this journey. Please feel free to call me at (972) 366-8815, or make an appointment with your campus counselor. It truly takes a village to guide students toward their goals and Venus is a strong village that has many wonderfully trained staff to give every student the opportunity for success!
Here are a few scholarships that are available for seniors. Local scholarships usually open in March and those will be given to your seniors through their classes, as well as being announced at school, and posted in the A Hall scholarship rack. The ONLY way to be AWARDED a scholarship is to APPLY!
