Indiana University East distributed scholarships to area high school guidance counselors from Indiana and Ohio during its annual Counselors’ Breakfast held November 20 in Whitewater Hall.
This is the ninth consecutive year that IU East has hosted the Counselors’ Breakfast. Over 60 guidance counselors attended. This year’s theme centered on Disney and was titled “Where Dreams Come True.”
“We have a great partnership with these counselors,” said Molly Vanderpool, director of Admissions. “These scholarships enable them to reward their high school students for outstanding academic achievements with a significant scholarship.”
Counselors present received scholarship certificates to give to students in their high schools that meet the academic and admission requirements at IU East. Every guidance counselor received vouchers for eight, four-year scholarships ranging from $6,000 to $27,000 to distribute to qualified high school seniors.
This semester, IU East continued a record-setting trend in enrollment with 4,716 students enrolled for fall 2015, a 3.1 percent increase compared to the same time last year. Since 2007, IU East has doubled its enrollment.
