    May invites students to page at Statehouse

    INDIANAPOLIS — State Rep. Chris May (R-Bedford) encourages Hoosier students interested in state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2020 legislative session.

    Students ages 13 to 18 can spend a day at the Statehouse assisting House legislators and staff, and touring the governor’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court and the House and Senate Chambers.

    “It’s so important for younger Hoosiers to understand how our state legislature works and the impact it has on their lives,” May said. “We want our future leaders to not just be civically-minded, but engaged in making Indiana the best state it can be. The page program offers a tremendous introduction to how it all works.”

    May said student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can participate together. Students are responsible for their own lunch expenses and transportation to and from the Statehouse.

    Opportunities to serve as a page include Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the legislative session, which began Jan. 6 and concludes by March 14.

    For more information and to sign up, visit IndianaHouseRepublicans.com/PageProgram2020 or call 800-382-9841.

    Start thinking of filing your FAFSA now

    Hoosier students and families are encouraged to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is now open for the 2020-2021 school year.

    The FAFSA must be filed by April 15. All students should file a FAFSA, regardless of family income. In addition to determining eligibility for state and federal financial aid, many colleges require a completed FAFSA to award merit and need-based scholarships.

    Filing the FAFSA is critical for Indiana’s 21st Century Scholars, who must file on time to earn the state scholarship that pays for up to four years of college tuition.

    More information is available through INvestEd Indiana at investedindiana.org, or the Indiana Commission for Higher Education at 888-528-4719 or awards@che.in.gov.

    Enrollment open for 21st Century Scholars

    Applications for the 21st Century Scholar program are being accepted. The program offers income-eligible Hoosier students up to four years of paid tuition at an eligible Indiana college or university after they graduate from high school, dependent upon financial need.

    In middle school and high school, scholars are connected to programs and resources the help them stay on track for college and career success.

    Applications must be received by June 30 of the student’s eighth-grade year. Scholars pledge to graduate with a Core 40 diploma and cumulative grade-point average of at least 2.5. They also pledge to abstain from illegal drugs and alcohol and illegal activities.

    For more information on requirements for the program, visit scholars.in.gov.

    CRC adds hours for high school completion

Classes focused on the high school equivalency assessment exam — formerly called GED classes — are taught year-round from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays and from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at the CRC, 246 E. Main St. There is no charge for the classes.

    Students who cannot attend then can arrange instruction by appointment or by distance learning.
