College-bound students should be looking for scholarships right now, because deadlines are going to be coming up throughout winter and spring.  Several local scholarships have recently become available through the Greene County College Partnership.  Anyone with questions about those scholarships or any other scholarships can visit the College Guide in room 128 for an application packet and scholarship listings.  College-bound seniors should also be filling out their FAFSAs if they haven’t already, because federal aid and many scholarships will require that to be filed.
