Congratulations to Sunshine Spiva, Maya Ingram, Meredith Kimmer and Aspen Evans for receiving a 2017 Parchment Scholarship. Spring Valley has been using Parchment for nearly seven years and their success during the 2015-16 school year has earned a $10,000 Parchment scholarship. Each student will receive a $2,500 scholarship, which is is financed by the Parchment scholarship.
Introduced in the 2015-16 school year, the Parchment Member Status Program rewards counselors, administrators, learners and their schools for their hard work. Schools earn rewards based on how frequently they engage with Parchment services. More engagement with Parchment results in a higher status (Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze). The four-tiered program offers performance-based rewards including:
· (1) $10,000 student scholarship
· (2) Conference registration and hotel accommodations for the 2016 National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) Annual Conference
“We hear from high schools regularly asking how they ‘stack up’ or compare to other schools using Parchment,” said Kevin Martin, Parchment Senior Director or Member Development. “The Member Status Program provides regular reporting to schools on their engagement with Parchment and provides tips on how to increase their utilization, with the goal of earning Platinum status and being selected for the $10,000 student scholarship.”
Located in Columbia, South Carolina, Spring Valley High School has a student population of just over 2,000 students, with 434 making up the Class of 2017. At the end of the 2016 school year, Spring Valley was a Platinum member school with Parchment, processing nearly one digital credential per student.
