Attention High School Seniors that reside in Oldham County! Oldham County Community Scholarships has over $75,000 in scholarship money available. Did you know that we have scholarships available for all types of students, not just the 4.0 students? Some of our sponsors want a 2.5 GPA, others want a "well rounded student" that volunteers in the community and participates in school activities, others want students planning a career in a particular field or attended a particular elementary school. There's something for EVERYONE! This year the students only have one essay to write to apply for ALL of our scholarships. Scholarships range from $500 to $5000. Application deadline is March 5th at 5 pm. Students can continue to "tweak" their application until the deadline. Go online to www.occs-ky.org to start the process or to learn more about the organization or call Pamela Brown 693-6632. Follow us on Facebook for updates. Volunteers and donations for new scholarships are always welcome.
The guidance office is continually sending out information regarding student opportunities and scholarships through the student email account listed on their ILP. Does your student check their ILP homepage and email? If your student has lost their password, they can stop in the guidance office to get that information.

Please consider donating to the OCHS PTSA Unfundraiser! We are facing the need to cut $2000 from an already lean $6000 budget. To those parents who already donated at registration, we thank you for your generosity. Many parents said they would like to donate after registration, and now is a great time, Any donation would help. We fell far short of our goal of $20 per family.
Where do your donation dollars go? We support many programs that directly impact OCHS and your child...$1000 in scholarships to graduating seniors, College and Career Nights, teacher and staff appreciation, Pyramid Awards, Reflections Art Contest, Red Ribbon Week drug and alcohol awareness, new technology, summer library program, student awards night, arts and humanities programs...and more!
Follow this link to the Unfundraiser form and support your OCHS PTSA today! Thank you! Kristen Anderson, OCHS PTSA President
