Cash For College

Financial Aid Workshop




A Cash for College Hands-On Workshop will be held on February 11, 2017 at MTSAC Community College in Walnut, CA.  The event is being held prior to the FAFSA priority due date of March 2, 2017.

This is an opportunity for seniors to receive free-guided assistance in completing their financial aid applications (FAFSA or CA Dream Act). The event is open to any graduating senior regardless of their college or university of choice.  (Translation: This Cash For College Workshop is open to any senior who is going to college next fall.  You don’t have to be attending MTSAC next fall, anyone attending college next fall may attend).

ACSA Region XV is hosting their annual High School Student Oratory Contest.

 The theme this year is ''AWAKEN THE FORCE WITHIN.'' In the Star Wars universe, the Jedi use the Light Side of “The Force” to promote love, freedom and responsibility through humility, courage, compassion and mutual learning. The Sith use the Dark Side of “The Force” to instill fear, limit freedom and personal success through conceit, oppression and criticism.


• How can The Force be used to encourage students and leaders to continue learning and improving? What are ways in which educational leaders can encourage and emphasize mutual learning from their students?

• Why do educational leaders need to be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of both sides of The Force? In leadership, is there ever a time when the use of The Dark Side is appropriate and/or necessary?


Leave your audience inspired to use The Force to educate and mentor our future leaders to become 21st century leaders.


The initial competition will be held on Thursday, January 26th, 6:00pm – 7:30pm in the WVUSD Board Room. Walnut Valley student participants will perform their speech before a small panel of judges and will be scored according to the ACSA Oratory Contest Rubric (see page 2). The winner of contest will receive $100, and will move on to the Region XV contest, held on Wednesday, March 8th at the Huntington Library and Gardens, beginning at 6pm. 6 regional winners will be selected as the Region XV winners and will each receive a $500 scholarship, which will be presented at the Region XV Spring Awards Banquet on Friday, April 28, 2017.


We are hoping to have at least 5 students represent our school at the initial event. Please see the attached flyers for more information.
