Scholarship Application

Hello Everyone,

The following form is for each high school Sonora and La Habra.

Students are to follow the directions 1-5 and then mail them to Alan.

We have the form at both high schools career centers where career counselors have worked with us for years and work directly with the students.

These counselors know all the scholarships available and what the requirements are and they also instruct the students on what type of work it takes to be selected to be a potential recipients.

Please if you know a student that attend either of these high schools and have not gone to their career counselor then you may forward them one of these " applications" requirements for NOC.

And if all those ways fail then the absolute easiest way is to have them pick up the phone and call/text Alan 951-296-8773 or Teri 951-640-2923 (Mr. & Mrs. Heuer) or email us at terishelp@yahoo.com and we would be happy to assist . Teri Heuer 951-640-2923
