Seniors who have already applied to college were recognized and rewarded for their efforts on Nov. 4 during PIT. Cookies for College is an event that promotes early application and encourages students in all grade levels to think about their future.

Cookies for College is a similar event to the College Coffeehouse, which was held for the past two years, where seniors were provided doughnuts, coffee, and a drawing for different gift cards.

“I was really excited that we changed it up this year because it gave students a better opportunity to attend in the afternoon rather than in the morning,” transition coordinator Sarah Spradling said.

Vandegrift also partnered with the Hill Country Education Foundation to pay for the different desserts and drinks that were provided. Also, $10 and $20 Starbucks gift cards were given through a drawing, and a photo booth was set up by the photojournalism class.

“We want to build school-wide awareness and use this time to celebrate the students who have this stress now off their back,” Spradling said.

Senior Kelse Redwine applied to different schools including Baylor, Auburn and Michigan State and is looking forward to the Cookies for College event. She was able to get her early applications in with the help of the senior AVID teacher Ms. Reeves.

“I am glad that I went to the Cookies for College event because it feels like all of my hard work applying for college has paid off,” Redwine said.
