Here are several things for you to know:
Scholarship applications are now available.

There is no requirement that the student must be a graduate of the Walnut Valley Unified School District in order to apply. Applications are available in hard copy, are being emailed to all reps to share with their members, and will be available to download from the WVEA website.
