Congrats to the 2016 First Gen Scholars!

First Generation Scholars 2016 receive scholarships at Senior Awards Night, May 2016

Congratulations First Generation Scholarship winners! Three Heritage High School students in the school’s NET Program were awarded merit-based scholarships at the Class of 2016 Senior Awards Night in May.

The scholarships, which are funded in part by your contributions to the PTO, are part of the NET Program for high school students who will be the first in their families to attend college. The program at Heritage is run by Brian Powers, a school counselor here who modeled it after one started by a former colleague at Littleton High School.

Powers uses money donated to the program to charter a bus to take the students on college campus visits around Colorado. The program also includes regular class meetings to talk about the best way to get ready to apply for college, scholarship opportunities and on-campus success strategies.

For more information or to donate or volunteer with the program, please contact Mr. Powers directly at bpowers@lps.k12.co.us.
