June 12, 2018

Many colleges and Universities offer books, certificates and medals to help high schools to honor the academic, extracurricular, leadership and volunteer work of members of their junior class.  While receipt of a Book Award does not guarantee admission to the college or university, it will get the student’s application a second look, and in some cases, make the student eligible for scholarship money. Today we are honored to present book awards to a few deserving juniors.
