Join us for TWO outstanding events in honor high school juniors who are academically excelling! The Red Stick Scholarship 5k Run is set for May 3, 2014, and will raise money for student scholarships. The 2014 Academic Honors Day Celebration will follow on May 10, 2014, where East Baton Rouge high school juniors and seniors who have earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 and above will be honored for their exemplary academic achievements this school year.
These students will receive a special award for their academic achievements and have the opportunity to explore a number of colleges that will be on-site to provide enrollment/scholarship information. This year, one lucky winner will drive away in a new Chevy Spark compliments of Gerry Lane Enterprises.
EBR HIGH SCHOOL JUNIORS AND SENIORS WHO HAVE EARNED A CUMULATIVE GPA OF 3.0 OR ABOVE WILL RECEIVE INVITATIONS PRIOR TO THE EVENT. FOR QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT THE HIGH SCHOOL’S COUNSELING OFFICE.
