Crosby Scholars plans information nights
This past year, Crosby Scholars helped 185 seniors from Rowan-Salisbury schools with post-secondary educational plans. These students will be attending college as far away as New York University and as close to home as Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.
The benefits of graduating as a Crosby Scholar include workshops that are provided to assist with the college application process, as well as trained, one-on-one senior advisors who meet regularly with their students to assist with college plans. In addition, the program is able to offer funding to students who meet the criteria of having unmet financial need as they are accepted into college. To date, over $40,000 has been awarded to the Crosby Class of 2017.
All Rowan-Salisbury sixth through 10th graders are eligible to enroll in the Crosby Scholars program. Parents interested in learning more about Crosby Scholars are invited to attend informational sessions that are being held around the county, on the following dates:
