Current seventh through 12th graders, alumni, parents and staff at Como-Pickton Consolidated Independent School District, along with interested community members, are invited to attend a special scholarship program Monday night at the school.
“Path to Scholarship Dream to Dream Great Dreams with Five Steps” will begin at 6 p.m. Jan. 14 in the secondary cafeteria at CP school, located at 13017 State Highway 11 east of Como. The workshop is free to all interested individuals.
Valerie Peak will talk about ways students can make college and scholarships a reality. She will walk attendees through the process of successful application to the school of choice and how to apply for and attain scholarships to pay for it without accumulating student loan debt.
According to information released by Path to Scholarships program, “total student loan debt is increasing at a rate of about $2,853.88 per second. Presently, the student loan debt is over $1 trillion dollars, which has surpassed credit card debt in our country. Students borrow because they believe they do not have any other choices or options. There is an alternative available for all students to pay for their college without accumulating excessive student loan debt.”
Previously, Path to Scholarship materials and curriculum were available only through a trained instructor. Last year, the program was made available online through www.Edudaris.com.
“The really awesome part is any student age 13 and older may enroll in one of the online classes to work on their portfolio. As if this couldn’t get any better, one of the main contacts offered to come out this school year and do a free workshop for all of our students and their families in grades seven through college!” enthused CP Counselor Laurie M. Bult, excited that more students will have an opportunity to utilize Path to Scholarship.
“This program doesn’t just stop at the end of high school or college but it keeps on rewarding users for a lifetime! My wish would be for every single student to have access and support to use Path to Scholarships,” Bult concluded.
