The Lions Club awards three needs-based $2,000 scholarships to active HMHS LEO Club seniors, based on nominations from the LEOs faculty sponsor, and a thorough review of each nominee’s academics, extra-curricular contributions, and community service. Each May, the LEOs faculty sponsor submits the names of 10 – 20 deserving LEOs seniors. One of the Guidance Counselors prepares a detailed spreadsheet by the beginning of June, including each candidate’s GPA, Test Scores, College choice(s), Scholarships, Activities, and the estimated gap between any scholarships and needed tuition. The names of the candidates do NOT appear on the spreadsheet; they are just numbered from 1 – n. A three-person Lions Club Scholarship committee meets with the Guidance Counselor and reviews the spreadsheet; the Committee does not see the candidate names. A needs-based decision is then made, and the Lions scholarship awards are confirmed.
