Colleges are visiting SHS

Students a little bit of college is, and has been, coming to your neck of the woods and oh, how the counselors wish you would take advantage of these great opportunities. Please check the calendar on this blog for the upcoming college visits from schools around the US. When the colleges are in your Future Center you have the one-on-one access to an amazing resource. These college reps not only give you information on costs and majors but also on campus life and activities you can get involved in while you attend. The only person you hurt by not visiting is your future self.

Army ROTC Scholarship Information

Any students interested in learning about the Army ROTC scholarship program should check out the information below. This info works for CU Boulder’s ROTC program.

4yr scholarship 2011-12

BUFF BN AROTC Program

Buffalo Battalion Newsletter Spring 2011 Issue 1

It’s time for your seniors to apply for the national Army ROTC scholarship! The online application deadline is January 10, 2012, for your current seniors. Current juniors will be able to begin the application near the end of the spring semester.

I have attached some information for you and your students on the application process, as well as tips for creating a competitive application. This year only 3,000 awards will be made nationwide (1,000 four-year scholarships and 2,000 three-year awards). Grades, test scores, and proven athletic and leadership ability are essential, as well as solid performance on a presidential fitness test (which can be administered by your PE coaches), and especially important this year is the student’s face-to-face interview with a Professor of Military Science. MAJ David Rozelle here at CU-Boulder would welcome the opportunity to meet with your students, and I am also offering pre-interviews over the phone or during campus visits to assist your students in doing their very best.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and to pass my contact information along to any students, parents, faculty, or staff who may be interested in the Army ROTC scholarship program. I would also be happy to visit your schools if you have some interested students, or if you’d just like me to get the word out to them about our program and opportunities for college scholarships with guaranteed Army officer careers (full-time on active duty or part-time in the National Guard or Army Reserve) upon college graduation.

Our Facebook site (link below) is also very popular with our prospective students. There they can view pictures and videos of our recent events and communicate with our cadets and their families. We have posted our “Parent to Parent” video that allows moms and dad to hear what the families of our current cadets have to say about what our program has done for their children, and an Army Physical Fitness Test video to help the students prepare for the physical challenges of a military career.

I look forward to working with all of you this school year!
