The Lynn Beebe College Counseling Grant (LBCCG)
The Lynn Beebe College Counseling Grant (LBCCG) was established in 2012 to honor Lynn Beebe, a longtime Scotts Valley Middle School teacher and counselor and private college counselor. The grant continues Lynn’s work; dedication and commitment to helping Scotts Valley students pursue their educational goals and acceptance into higher education.
Scotts Valley High School students can apply for the grant, which provides selected students with financial assistance for professional college and career counseling, ACT/SAT test preparation and guidance through the two- or four-year college application process. Grant recipients are selected each year by the LBCCG Board of Directors through an application and interview process beginning each spring. The degree of financial assistance is at the sole discretion of the Grant’s Board of Directors. Since the grant’s inception, seven SVHS students have been selected as grant recipients.
2016 LBCCG application materials are available in the SVHS College and Career Center on March 7th with applications due by April 15th. Interviews of selected final candidates will take place on April 27th. Recipients will be notified on April 29th. For more information, visit the SVHS College and Career Center or call SVHS at 439-9555.
In order to serve even more SVHS students, the LBCCG board solicits donations and hosts a Wine-Down-Wednesday fund raising event each spring. Please join us at this year’s event on May 4, 2016 at Malone’s Grille in Scotts Valley to support the endowment.
Tax-deductible donations can be made to the “LBCCG Endowment” and mailed to The Scotts Valley Educational Foundation, c/o the Scotts Valley Unified School District, 4444 Scotts Valley Drive, Scotts Valley, CA 95066.
The LBCCG endowment operates under the umbrella of the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization; both the LBCCG and SVEF are all-volunteer organizations.
“The summer before my senior year, I did not know a lot about the college application process. Through the Beebe Scholarship fund I learned about my college options and the steps I needed to take to maximize my chances of getting into my top universities. Having a college counselor through the college application process helped me write personal statements that best reflected the student I was. Also the SAT prep classes I was able to take contributed to my highest score.”
-Valerie Morrison, freshman, UCLA
“The Lynn Beebe Grant has helped me so much in the past year. The test prep and counseling that I have received has helped me stay calm and not worry too much about college. With all the support I have received, I no longer have to worry and stress about my future knowing that I have help.”
“The Beebe Grant has been such an amazing asset moving forward in my search looking at colleges. I’m so much more at ease when I think about my future and how I want to go about handling it. Julie has been amazing narrowing down my ideas for what colleges I want to go to and what scholarships are out there! The test prep class just started but I’m not worrying about taking the ACT in April because I know I will be fully prepared!!”
