Attention, senior students and parents/guardians! Please see the below important information for updates regarding our senior awards and Hanover scholars events.

Senior awards provides us with the opportunity to recognize our graduating seniors receiving honors, awards, and scholarships from Patrick Henry High School, alumni and families, universities, and state and national organizations. We recognize seniors for their many special gifts and talents from academic distinction to athletics excellence, for personal character, dedication to service, and more.

As you know, in light of recent events our school buildings remain closed for the duration of the 2019–2020 school year. Due to these unfortunate circumstances, we will be unable to hold our traditional in-house ceremonies. However, we still want to recognize our seniors accomplishments by showcasing their achievements through a senior awards program document that we will distribute on Wednesday, May 20 via social media, Schoology, and e-connect messages to our community and students. This document will include a listing of all school-specific senior scholarship and award winners, Hanover scholars recipients, and other outside scholarships/awards received by the graduating class of 2020, as reported to us by the May 1 deadline.

We will contact scholarship recipients (for school-specific scholarships) via Schoology on May 20, 2020, and we will provide them with a scholarship recipient information form. This form will request recipient contact information, college/postsecondary mailing address, and other pertinent information needed to process and send their scholarship funds to the appropriate institution.

We will also honor Hanover scholars for their accomplishments in the senior awards program document. Seniors were notified in the fall if they were a Hanover scholar and can contact Mrs. Patterson via email or on Schoology with any questions. Hanover scholar students must complete the Hanover scholar information Google form online by Friday, April 17.

Outside scholarships: If a senior has received a scholarship award and/or grant from the college they will attend or from an outside organization not related to Patrick Henry High School (e.g. military, businesses, etc.), they must send a copy of the official award letter to their career counselor, Mrs. Shannon Edwards, via email or Schoology confirming the scholarship no later than Friday, May 1 if they want us to acknowledge them for it in the senior awards program document. Along with the official award letter, please also indicate the dollar amount and the name of the scholarship that you would like to be included in the senior awards program document.

Additionally, we want to recognize seniors who have received their Eagle Scout rank by the Boy Scouts or the Gold Award by the Girl Scouts. In order to do so, they must email Mrs. Edwards, career counselor, or via Schoology with official documentation of their achievement by Friday, May 1.

We will not include any outside scholarship and/or award information we receive after Friday, May 1 in the senior awards program document or in other forms of communication. Please contact Mrs. Edwards, career counselor, via email with any questions.
