IU East presents scholarships for high school students during virtual Counselors’ Breakfast

Indiana University East distributed scholarships to area high school guidance counselors from Indiana and Ohio during its virtual Counselors’ Breakfast held November 6 on Zoom.

This is the 14th consecutive year that IU East has hosted the Counselors’ Breakfast. Over 80 guidance counselors attended. This year’s theme, “We Love Guidance Counselors.” included a welcome from Michelle Malott, executive vice chancellor for Academic Affairs.

Molly Vanderpool, executive director for recruitment and transitions for the Office of Admissions at IU East, hosted the virtual event.

“We are thrilled to continue to offer these scholarships this year,” Vanderpool said.

The virtual program also provided guidance counselors with information on IU East’s new test optional enrollment policy and scholarships, messages from IU East Office of Admissions staff and current students, and information sharing about the campus, academic programs, enrollment process and more provided through an online game of Kahoot!, an online game-based learning platform.

Counselors attending the virtual event received scholarship nominations to give to students in their high schools that meet the academic and admission requirements at IU East.

Every guidance counselor received online vouchers for eight, four-year scholarships ranging from $7,000 to $30,000 to distribute to qualified high school seniors.
