Students were honored during the annual Senior Awards Night held at Branson High School on May 13. A total of $308,467,366 in local and merit-based scholarship awards were offered to BHS seniors this school year.

“This achievement is a true testament to the dedication, hard work, and potential of the graduating class of 2024,” says Branson High School senior counselor, Dixie Bailey. “We are deeply grateful to our local community and the colleges and universities across the nation for their support and investment in our students’ futures.”

In an effort to expand scholarship access for students, Branson High School has partnered with VU Scholarships, a Kansas City-based organization, to present more opportunities to graduating seniors.

VU is a platform that matches high school students with college scholarships ahead of application, and exists to encourage, support, and guide students in higher education planning. VU currently partners with over 75 area high schools and has over 30 university partners.

Representatives and benefactors from over forty area businesses and organizations, as well as local military recruiters, were in attendance at Branson High School’s Senior Awards Night to present scholarships and awards to members of the Class of 2024.

Bailey shares, “The generosity of our local benefactors continues to help make our students' post-secondary plans a reality."
