One of their roles has become more important than ever: preparing students to be ready for life after high school, which increasingly means college.

    My high school guidance counselor was given the opportunity to select two students to apply for a scholarship to WKU. I was ultimately awarded the scholarship, which paid four years of tuition. As the first person in my family to go to college, my counselor knew how much I wanted to go to college and that my family would not be able to help pay for tuition. I'm very grateful for her help.

    My question is how much input does the counselor have in the scholarships a student applies for? Can a counselor make verbal recommendations one way or the other, or is it completely revolved around the letters being sent by the student?
