Eighth graders sought to become Shiawassee Scholars

The Shiawassee Regional Education Service District and the Cook Family Foundation invites parents of area talented eighth graders to attend an informational meeting, as they may qualify for academically talented educational programs. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 13 at 6:30 p.m. at the Baker College Welcome Center, 1309 S. M-52, Owosso.

There has been a date change this year. All previous Shiawassee Scholars have tested in January, but that test is no longer offered through The College Board. The SAT test to qualify for Shiawassee Scholars must be taken by Dec. 2.

Parents and students in grades sixth - eighth to attend this informational meeting to learn about SAT testing, Shiawassee Scholars, other available gifted and talented programs, and how to register for the SAT test held on Dec. 2 at the Owosso Middle School.

The top 50 eighth grade students in the county who achieve at the highest level as determined by their scores on the SAT will be invited to become Shiawassee Scholars. The Shiawassee Scholars program is a collaborative program between the Shiawassee RESD and The Cook Family Foundation. The program recognizes academically talented students early and seeks to encourage these students to continue to pursue academically challenging activities during their high school years. It is the mission of the Shiawassee Scholars program to assist these students through various opportunities, resources, and support to reach their full potential.

To reserve a space at the meeting, contact Renee Dotson at dotson@sresd.org or (989) 743-3471.
