Financial Aid Workshops at HCHS

At this time we have a 90% completion rate of the FAFSA by our current senior class. The last 10% of this class have made or are making other arrangements for completion. Therefore we are cancelling the last FAFSA workshop that was originally scheduled for January 29th as it has been deemed unnecessary. Former graduates enrolled in college are reminded that they must also fill out a FAFSA each year and this needs to be done as soon as possible because the state grant money will probably run out before the end of January. Please feel free to contact the guidance at the high school if you need assistance with the FAFSA (270-653-4044).

Buck Fever Finale
 Deer season is a big deal in Hickman County, and since many HCHS students are avid deer hunters, this month’s Student Showcase display at the HCHS Library focused on this popular hobby.

The month-long focus culminated with Hickman County Ag Extension Agent Mattea Mitchell presenting a program on preparing and planting a deer plot in anticipation of next year’s harvest.
