Scholarships and awards are given to honorable seniors

College has confronted an increment of student loans by five percent since the 2000’s. Students who look forward to earning  scholarships may face challenges due the competition between students. Senior awards are an annual meeting when scholarships are given to ‘Honored Seniors.’

“I thought that the senior awards were a great opportunity to get money to pay for college,” senior Bijal Patel said.

For the 2016 class, only 81 students were chosen from a total of 700-750 seniors. Approximately 1.5 million dollars were given to the community of HSE and FHS together. Only 54 awards and scholarships were awarded, all of them varying in between 100 to 300,000 dollars. 13 department awards were provided.

“To me even a little award can make big difference. It represents all of the hard work I did over the years, so I thought that it was great achievement to be part of the awards,” Patel said.

Hello! My name is Carolina Puga Mendoza, I'm from Nayarit, Mexico and moved to Indiana about five years ago. This is my third year as a staff member and first year as a section editor. I chose newspaper out of curiosity along with a bunch of other school activities and honestly I've fallen in love with N the Red. I'm highly excited about what this year will bring and look forward strengthening my weaknesses.
