For the 3rd consecutive year, the laptop program is no longer part of the LOCAL SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM administered by the WHS Guidance Office. Prior to to the 2019 school year, if you filled out that application, you were also eligible for a laptop through the Crusader Website.
Again, this year, a separate application was utilized, that application was available in the WHS Guidance Office. Like the last 2 years, "PROOF OF ENROLLMENT" will be required before a check for a laptop will be issued, that proof of enrollment deadline runs well into the summer. Those 2021 WHS Graduates, planning on attending college or vocational training, were eligible to apply. Last year, we ended up distributing $200 checks instead of hardware, to all that were eligible. (due to laptop shortages because of COVID) This year, Chromebooks and other laptops should be in better supply, the checks can be applied towards what each graduate requires.. The deadline to turn in the application was extended twice between the first of Jan. 2021 and the eventual deadline date of Thursday, Feb. 18, 2021. Seniors were reminded of the deadline "numerous" times. NO FURTHER APPLICATIONS for 2021 WILL BE ACCEPTED.
WHS.CC LAPTOP/SCHOLARSHIP DONATIONS, anytime throughout the year, can be mailed to:
PO BOX 556
Wellington, KS 67152-0556
Please make CHECKS payable to "Wellington Community Foundation". On memo line write WHS.CC Laptops/Scholarships.
You can also use PAYPAL - my email "firstname.lastname@example.org" will start the payment process for you on PAYPAL. Once received, entire amount will be transferred to WELLINGTON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION and noted below.
Thank you sincerely to the many folks that contribute towards this cause! The students that participate (and their parents) appreciate it. Sending kids off to college or vocational programs can be very expensive. Providing the laptops helps a little with the overall expense and it's a pleasure for all of us to be able to do that. GO BIG RED!
