On May 1, fifty-two eighth grade students officially became Shiawassee Scholars. The Class of 2022 pictured here is from: Byron, Corunna, Durand, Laingsburg, Morrice, New Lothrop, Owosso, Perry and St. Paul schools . By identifying and recognizing academically talented students early, the Shiawassee Scholars program seeks to encourage students to continue to pursue academically challenging activities during their high school years. The program is a partnership between the Cook Family Foundation and the Shiawassee Regional Education Service District, and since 1999 and has recognized nearly 960 Scholars.
The Shiawassee Scholars Program provides resources and support to academically talented high school students to reach their full potential. Students are identified in eighth grade by achieving the highest scores in the county on the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test). Shiawassee Scholars participate in several programs, starting with a three-day trip this June to the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor. Through high school, Scholars have the opportunity to practice their test-taking skills, attend several informational sessions regarding planning for college and career, get assistance with dual enrollment options and accelerated academic programs, and can apply for a scholarship for a summer academic program.
