Alumni Scholarships

The Alumni Association Scholarship Applications are now avaliable for seniors in Mr. Hughes office or in Mr. Morgan's room. They are offering a $500 scholarship and maybe more if they raise more money.

Locust Fork alumni share a special bond. This bond can only be understood by experiencing the community and school itself. Alumni of Locust Fork High School have always taken care of their own. Scholarships for Seniors is just one additional way for this tradition to continue. Guidelines for establishing scholarships are listed below:

Scholarship Guidelines

The donor will establish the name of scholarship, guidelines for determining who is awarded the scholarship, and may present (if desired) the scholarship at Awards Day or at Graduation in the Spring. Scholarships recipients are selected by committee.

Several Locust Fork High School alumni and classes have established scholarships. Many of these scholarships range from $500.00 to $2000.00 a year.

Please contact our counselor, Mr. John Hughes at jhughes@blountboe.net to establish a scholarship for Seniors at Locust Fork High School.

* Locust Fork High School holds the right to deny scholarship request. This decision will be made by the Scholarship Development Committee. This committee will consist of the Locust Fork High School Principal, Assistant Principal, Counselor, one teacher, one student, and one parent.

ACT Registration Information


The school code for Locust Fork High School is 012-295. Students may register on-line at www.actstudent.org. If students register on-line they will have to pay with a credit card. A student may use a paper application which may be located in the guidance office. I will mail the ACT if the student puts their check made out to ACT in the registration envelope. Also, students must put three stamps on the ACT registration if they want me to mail it. If students forget to put stamps on the ACT packet then the registration materials will not be mailed. Do not send cash. Only use a check, money order, or pay by credit card. Also, students may go to www.actstudent.org and find links to take practice tests. There are also paper practice tests available in the guidance office.


The College Board which is the same agency that administers the Pre Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) in October and the Advanced Placement Exams in May also administers the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). This test maybe used in lieu of the ACT for college admissions or scholarships. The SAT is not used as much in much of the South or Midwest. It is used more in the Mid Atlantic, New England, and on the West Coast. Mostly the ACT is used here, but all of the colleges in Alabama will accept the SAT. The registration deadlines for the SAT are as follows:

Finally, the high school code for the PSAT is the same as it is for the ACT: 012-295


PRE SCHOLASTIC APTITUDE TEST (PSAT) INFORMATION


The Pre SAT (PSAT) is typically given in the eleventh grade. In rare instances, a tenth grader may take the test. The PSAT is similar to the SAT. If a student qualifies (which will not be determined until August 2010) they may qualify for National Merit Semi Finalist Competition for scholarships. Generally, a person would probably need to be in the 95th percentile in all areas to qualify.
