I was in a ward council meeting when our ward’s job employment specialist was informing the council about what services are offered at our local Deseret Industries (DI).
One service is a class on how to prepare and apply for college and financial scholarships. They have pages of scholarships to apply for and great tips for writing good essays. The class is taught by a missionary couple. In our area it is taught ever first Tuesday of the month at 7pm. Perfect for a laurel class activity. The girls loved going, and I came away wishing that I had attended something like this when I was a senior! So if you are in an area with a DI nearby, I say check it out! We are making it an annual activity.
