Congratulations to senior Bryce Cruise
Congratulations to senior Bryce Cruise on being named a National Merit Semifinalist for 2023-2024!! A National Merit Semifinalist (NMSF) is a student who scored in the top 1% on the PSAT during their junior year in their state. To win the coveted “Semifinalist” designation in Texas for this year’s competition, students must have earned a minimum “selection index” score of 219 on the exam! Way to go Bryce!! Bulldog proud!
You might already be aware of how our college-bound students here at Heights keep our college center busy all year long. We believe that our parents would be the ideal volunteers to lend a hand with the various events and projects we have in the pipeline.
We'll ensure that this sign-up sheet remains up-to-date as we plan new events throughout the semester. You'll find a brief description under each event, but if you have any questions or require additional information, please don't hesitate to reach out to me via email.
For parents volunteering to help update the scholarship list, we'll have a laptop available for use, though we recommend blue light or reading glasses if needed.
The college center appreciates your help!
