Due to COVID-19, WHS Graduation this year is slated for July 12th @ 2PM in the WHS Main Gym - MORE INFO
This year the program is no longer part of the LOCAL SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM administered by the WHS Guidance Office. Prior to this year, if you filled out that application, you were also eligible for a laptop through the Crusader Website. (By the way, I appreciate all the assistance the staff in the Guidance Office have lended towards the laptop program over the years - thank you Linda, Sammie, and Carmen!)
This year, a separate application was utilized, that application was available in the WHS Guidance Office. Like last year, "PROOF OF ENROLLMENT" will be required when picking up the laptop this summer, deadline for pickup will more than likely be August 3, 2020. Those planning on attending college or vocational training, were eligible to apply. Last year, we discovered waiting until after school is out, can translate into great savings on laptops as many sales can generally occur at that time. Last year, we saved considerable dollars over previous years for that reason. This year, Chromebooks are in short supply, due to COVID-19 and massive purchases nation-wide by school districts setting up online learning. The deadline to turn in the application was Feb. 3, 2020. 53 applications were received by the deadline. In the event, not enough funding is raised to accommodate all those eligible, a random drawing from the applicants who have produced PROOF OF ENROLLMENT, will take place on Aug. 3, 2020.(Date subject to change based on availability, etc.)
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!
