Spencer Godwin of Blossom, a senior at Prairiland High School, is receiving a boost in his pursuit of a career in surgery technology, thanks to a summer scholarship program offered by Paris Junior College.
The scholarship, available to all eligible graduating high school seniors in the PJC service area, covers tuition for one class in either the Summer I or Summer II semester.
“I’ve been taking English and Texas Government (as dual credit classes in high school),” said Godwin. “I’m taking pharmacology and microbiology this summer; then in the fall I’m starting on my path towards Surgical Technology by taking prerequisite classes.”
The summer tuition scholarship is available to graduating seniors from high schools in the PJC service area in Delta, Lamar, Hunt, Hopkins, and Red River counties, and part of Fannin County. Students may choose a workforce class leading to a career or an academic class, including those from Texas’ core curriculum, for transfer to a university. One class from either Summer I or Summer II semester qualifies.
The link to the scholarship application may be found at www.parisjc.edu/scholarships. High school seniors wanting the summer class scholarship should enter “graduating senior 2018” in the scholarship application box that asks for “semester/year to attend PJC.” Those wishing to apply for fall scholarships should select fall – and they need to apply now. Filling out the FAFSA is also required; go to www.fafsa.gov.
