What better way to honor the dedicated students of Slinger High School and their scholarship donors than through Awards Night at Slinger High School. On May 16th, at 7pm, students were recognized for various scholarships. Mr. Sievers proudly announced student’s names, along with other guests from colleges and local organization that gave out scholarships.

The amount of scholarship money given out ranged from a couple hundred up to thousands of dollars! Packets were handed out that listed scholarship recipients and amounts, that included ones from inside and outside the ceremony. By glancing through it, you could see just how many seniors won. What’s even more amazing was that some people even won more than one!

This is an opportunity to show that with great effort in and outside of school, you can truly be rewarded. As a graduating senior, some advice I give to those out there who will still attend high school is don’t wait till the last minute to try new things. Join a club, volunteer in your community, play a sport. It’s experiences that help you better understand your full-potential, and you never know, you just might be able to win a scholarship!

We must thank our high school for organizing this event, who made it possible for students and families to gather in recognition. May these scholarships guide these students a step closer toward achieving their dreams.
