If you need money for college, apply for scholarships! It is YOUR responsibility to pick up applications and fill them out. Applying for scholarships is hard work and it takes dedication, persistence and organization on your part. Mr. Thomas is always willing to help you but remember that he has other responsibilities in the school and isnt always available. Plan ahead and make an appointment with him.
LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION Whoever you ask for these, please give them at least one weeks notice, so they have time to prepare a good letter. Remember the old adage Lack of preparation on YOUR part does not necessitate an emergency on MY part.
