Seniors, Hilton Head have much to celebrate

As Hilton Head Island High School seniors graduate, a few of their achievements should be noted.

The students applied to a total of 207 different colleges and universities all across the United States, with a total of 416 acceptances received. Several students have received full or partial scholarships from their selected university or college, including academic, artistic and athletic. There has been a total of 330 scholarship applications completed. Scholarships awarded totaled $3.7 million.

These statistics reflect the drive and ambition of the class of 2011, as well as the wonderful job of the guidance department, faculty and staff to prepare these students to succeed in college. As a community, we should wish them well in the next chapter of their lives.
