My oldest GD who is  13 and in the 7th grade just received a college scholarship.  She is a very bright student and a very active almost  teenager.  I had never heard of such a scholarship but  one of her teachers suggested she apply and yesterday they received word that she had been awarded one.  Wow!!  I'm not for sure it is a guaranteed thing at this point, probably more an incentive to continue doing well in school and then receiving the help.  Anyway, needless to say, we are very proud of her.

That is something to be very proud of.  Congratulations!  Here in Ohio they have something called PSEO (Post secondary education opportunity).  My granddaughter was able to start college when she was a junior in high school and was able to get college and high school credit and the high school had to pay for her classes.  Something to look into.

Super, I think they do have those kind of things and I am so glad your GD is doing so well.
