12th Grade Guidance

Senior Counselor - Kay White

As the parent or guardian of a Ruston High School senior, you are keenly aware of what a busy time this is in your child’s life. In an effort to keep you informed about upcoming events and important dates, I will periodically contact you through newsletters. While I hope these letters will be helpful, please feel free to contact me at 255-0807 or kwhite2@lincolnschools.org if you need additional information or have questions. Graduation is scheduled for May 18, 2021. Please mark your calendars. It will be here before we know it!

Senior Reminders

It's not time to forget what's important. Use your senior year to apply to colleges and improve your ACT score. Don't get sloppy when you're at the finish line.

College Applications and Scholarships

Guidance will provide available scholarships as they are received by the guidance department.

  • TOPS: To be TOPS eligible, a student must have a minimum 2.5 GPA and an ACT score of at least 20. Also, the students must complete the 17.5 TOPS core classes.
  • College Applications: Most colleges and university prefer that you register online. If you have not applied to the college(s) of your choice, please do so immediately.
  • Transcript Requests: If you would like for a transcript or ACT scores to be sent to a college on your behalf, please see Mrs. White in Guidance.
  • NCAA Clearinghouse: If you plan to play a collegiate sport, you must register with the NCAA Clearinghouse. Information is available in the Guidance office.
  • America's Milk Processors and USA TODAY are pleased to bring you the 12th annual "Scholar Athlete Milk Mustache of the Year" (SAMMY) 2009 Award Program.
