      Hi, Karen!

      I just wish HP and you had been around when I was a high school senior looking for financial aid in 1969-70.

      This is like a cyber bulletin board for high school students searching for fast scholarship information leads. Around the country, a whole bunch of parents and teenagers are grateful for this easily-accessible and reader-friendly material.

      Well done once again, my friend!

      Thanks Hawaiianodysseus!

      I am closing in on meeting my goal this week. I think you mentioned that your daughter is in college? College students are also eligible for a lot of these scholarships I am listing each month. Please check them out and share them with her. It would be great if people associated with Hub Pages won some of these scholarships I am posting!
