Scholarships for High School Students on December 10

On Saturday I listened to top scholarship recipients talk to high school

seniors.

They told about the process and the rigorous interviews.  Finally, they were awarded scholarships.

Monica Angulo addresses high school students at Be a Leader Foundation.

On December 10, 2011 Be a Leader Senior Boot Camp  meets specifically with high school seniors.  Matthew Flores from the Financial Aid Department at Arizona State University will be there to teach budgeting.  He observed that parents were doing the budgets instead of the students, and they need to learn how to budget.  My favorite budgeting tools are available free from http://www.daveramsey.com/tools/budget-forms/  I helped my own son figure out his finances using the tools.

We are also going to show how scholarships fit into the equation.  The Gates Millennium Scholars Program-7 information is now available.  We will be talking about this on the 10th.

One of the scholars had a side job:  teaching ball room dancing.  Tee Jay Netters said he would come back and show us how to dance salsa, cumbia, and ball room.  Wear your dancing slippers!
