Dawson Ex-Students Association
The Dawson Ex-Students Association sponsored a scholarship seminar at the Dawson High School for seniors and their parents Saturday, Feb. 2. The goal of the seminar was to provide information to parents and seniors about scholarships and financial aid. Crystal Nicholson, Navarro College Financial Aid Counselor, gave a very informative presentation on scholarships. She also presented an overview of the Federal Financial Aid Form (FAFSA) and answered questions. Carolyn Barton, DISD Senior Advisor, stated that this is one of the best groups of seniors she has had the pleasure of working with and feels they will all do well in college.
Dawson’s General Scholarship Application can be found at the DISD Web site http://www.dawsonisd.net and must be completed and turned in to Carolyn Barton, Dawson High School by May 1, 2013.
The Dawson Ex-Students Association awards three $1,000 scholarships each year to deserving seniors. The Scholarship Seminar was part of the association’s effort to provide assistance to the students of Dawson’s schools. Information about the Ex-Students Association can be found on the DISD website in the “Former Bulldog” section of Facebook them at Dawson Ex-Students Association. Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Dawson Ex-Students Association can contact Don Sykes at (972) 227-4570 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
