Sophomore opportunity: The HOBY Leadership Seminar is for 10th-grade students across North Carolina. During the June 14-16 seminar at N.C. State University, students will engage in activities and workshops to learn about and enhance their leadership strengths and cultivate skills to make a positive impact in their community. The cost to attend, if selected, is $225.

Project Uplift: The application is now open, and the deadline is Jan. 15, 2019, for this UNC-Chapel Hill program for juniors of outstanding academic ability from backgrounds underrepresented in post-high school education (including Native American, African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Asian American, first-generation and rural populations). Students do not need to be nominated. They will need to request an electronic copy of their transcripts via ScribOrder and list in the instructions that they need an electronic copy. Ms. Fields will email an encrypted unofficial copy that they can upload. If you have questions, please contact Ms. Greene.
College and Career Fair: Thank you to 70 college, university, military and employer representatives who came today to Enloe's annual college and career fair. Students were able to get valuable information firsthand, pick up references and resources, share their resumes and even receive on-site admission to some schools. And, yes, a few tables even had candy: a win-win. Kudos to Ms. Manning, our career development coordinator, who organized the event, and thanks to all students who helped the counselors with set-up and take-down.

Beware of scams! Our friends with the NC State Education Assistance Authority are alerting students and parents that assistance with FAFSA completion and financial aid advice is completely free. Federal Student Aid at the US Department of Education will never call and ask for money to provide an awards package. Students will not be guaranteed more financial aid if they pay for a FAFSA completion service. All financial aid administrators on every NC campus are willing to assist students and families regardless of the college they attend. For more on financial aid help, go here.
Important information for seniors: In orientation, you should have received a sheet with frequently asked transcript and recommendation questions and a set of deadlines. The sheet is also linked above. Please read it first before contacting your counselors; the sheet answers most of the questions you will have. In addition, we have run rank and it is now available to use. Contact your counselor if you need yours.
Orientations: Counselors have concluded orientation. Here are links to the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior orientations.
College panel highlights: See the presentation that counselors gave for parents of seniors and take a look at the Top 10 highlights from the event, which took place Tuesday, Sept. 25, in the auditorium and featured representatives from Meredith, ECU, Duke, Wake Tech and UNC-Chapel Hill.
Hurricane-related deadline extensions: In the wake of Hurricane Florence and its effects in North Carolina, several universities have announced extensions for early action, early decision or scholarship programs. To date, we're aware of Duke, South Carolina and N.C. State as well as Davidson College's free-applicatiion deadline and the ECU Honors College; we'll update as we hear more.

New location for college visits: College admissions representatives will now come to the West Gym Lobby during the lunch periods to meet with prospective students. Check our Google Calendar below for dates, which will be updated throughout the year. (They're also available on the bulletin board in Student Services.) Please pay attention to the times of the visits; most colleges don't stay for both lunches. Information is sent to the 'LoeDown and scroll, and also will go out via Remind (to students who are signed up for it!). These visits are for students only.

Why speak with a counselor? We’re here for you. Whatever concern students have — from academic to personal to career — you can come to your counselor and find a place where you can share your concern and get help in addressing it. Students can make an appointment request for any time of the school day. Your counselor will try to meet the request. We do try to make sure we talk with you during times when it least affects your class schedule.
When you come from class to see a counselor, be sure to let your teacher know about your appointment and have the teacher fill out a hall pass so you won’t be marked absent. We are also willing to schedule meetings before or after school. You can reach us through these links:
A-De: Ms. Greene
Di-Jh: Mr. Small
Ji-Muk: Ms. Dechant
Mul-Shem: Ms. Saviello
Shen-Z: Ms. Kearney
Please know that if you feel you’re in an emergency and need to speak with someone, you’re always welcome to come to Student Services. Depending on who is available, you may speak with your counselor or another counselor. Feel free to contact us throughout the school year. Student Services is not just our name — it’s our mission!

In the spotlight
Program gains national recognition: The American School Counselor Association has named Enloe’s Student Services program as a Recognized ASCA Model Program. The RAMP designation recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment. Since the program’s inception, more than 800 schools have been designated as RAMP recipients. Enloe was honored in July at a recognition ceremony at ASCA’s annual conference for making an exemplary commitment to comprehensive school counseling programs. From left, Ms. Miller, Ms. Greene and Mr. Small represented Enloe in Los Angeles at the ASCA convention, where Ms. Miller accepted the RAMP award.
