This year, more than 330,000 works of art and writing were submitted. Only the top .5% were recognized at the national gold medal level. Elkah DeVoe won a Gold Medal in the Drawing & Illustration category which was titled “Resilient People.” Her piece will be sent to New York City to be on display until the end of June.

Seniors who still haven’t filed the FAFSA: Indiana has announced that the state’s March 10th FAFSA deadline will be extended until April 15th this year! The process for families became more complicated this year due to a glitch in the IRS retrieval tool. Students and their families can now go back in to file the FAFSA if they have not done so, or go back in if the tax import tool did not work for them. Take advantage of this second chance to possibly qualify for funds from the State and/or Federal government for college! Don’t miss this new deadline!
It’s time for the annual GHS Prom Dress Drive! This purpose of this drive is to provide free dresses for students who want to go to the prom but may be in financial need. We have several dresses in various styles and sizes to choose from. If you are in need of a prom dress or if you wish to donate a gently used dress, please contact Mrs. Hershberger or Mrs. Shakley. You may also ask your SRT teacher for more information.
