PLHS Hosts Metro Scholarship Event

Monarch alumni and Metro scholarship recipients, Joe Scales and Ben Brown, took time out of their busy college and work schedules to share their experiences and collegiate wisdom in a panel facilitated by Veronica Castro, Enrollment Specialist at Metropolitan Community College. Their panel was the highlight of PLHS’s 2nd Annual Metro Scholarship Event during which seniors considering attending Metro were also treated to rolls and juice and a presentation on different scholarships available to Metro students.

PLHS Post-Secondary Counselor, Shelli Koester, and Vickie Bradley, Scholarship Secretary, along with support from Ann Herbener and Christy Hotz hosted the event. Thanks to principal, Jerry Kalina and Nancy Veitch for the refreshments, to Terry Hoch, Jason Ryan and Jim Hooper for logistics and to the Monarch lunch ladies for assistance as well.
