Scholarship Applications Hit New Record
Laguna Beach High School seniors set a record for scholarship applications, with 134 seniors contending for approximately 247 individual scholarships from 101 donors.
Friday, March 8, was the deadline to apply with students staying in the library up until the last moment, finishing applications and essays. This year, nine LBHS Scholarship Foundation trustees stayed in the library also, helping the students complete and turn in the applications.
The volunteers help the students go through their applications and make sure that all the requirements are fulfilled, including transcripts, essays, and recommendations.
