scholarship:
1. Completed application form. Download form at:
http://woodrowwildcats.org/public_html/attachments/061_Woodrow%20Wilson%20High%20School%20PTA%20Scholarship%202009.pdf

3. Transcript and a copy of ACT/SAT scores.
This application is due on (April 9, 2010). Return applications to: Your Woodrow Counselor. Please direct any questions to Cynthia CreMeens at
rcremeens@tx.rr.com or (214) 321-2610. The winners of these scholarships will be announced at the Senior Assembly in May. NOTE: Scholarships will
only be paid DIRECTLY to the College. If you receive a full scholarship from a school or organization including fees and room
and board or your family income is over $90,000.00 then you will not qualify for this scholarship.

Do you have some dresses in your closet that you need to get rid of? Old prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses, or even a cocktail dress that you are just sick of
wearing? We invite you to Ditch the Dress for a great cause. Young Lives is mentoring program that reaches out to teen-age mothers and pregnant teens.
There is a dynamic chapter of Young Lives at Woodrow. The organization is a division of Young Life, and there are other Young Lives groups in the Dallas area.
Ditch the Dress is raising funds for summer camp for Young Lives girls and their babies. The camp is an opportunity to encourage, motivate, and mentor the
young mothers in a concentrated and spiritual environment. Since the cost of camp is beyond the means of most of our Young Lives girls, we are trying to
provide camperships for as many as we can. For more information about YoungLives, visit http://www.younglife.org/YoungLives/. For information about
YoungLives at Woodrow, contact Emily Martin at emilytm@sbcglobal.net or Becca Eby, Young Life Area Director, at beccaeby@gmail.com. So, how can you
help?
 DONATE YOUR DRESSES: Drop off any old dresses (semi-formal and formal) on Friday, March 26 from 10:00 am – 6:00pm at Fellowship Bible
Church (9330 N. Central Expressway, Dallas, 75231; the old United Artists movie theater at Park and 75)
 SHOP: All dresses will be for sale for only $25 each and all proceeds will benefit YoungLives. Shopping date is Saturday, March 27 from 10:00 – 5:00
at Fellowship Bible Church. Also, if you donate a dress then you are invited to the 9:00 pre-sale to get first dibs on the dresses.

 VOLUNTEER: If you have extra time on Friday or Saturday to help with the preparation or the sale, please let us know. Thanks so much and please
pass this along to all of your friends. Think of this as a spring cleaning opportunity. All those old formals, bridesmaid dresses, and cocktail dresses
could find new life in someone else's closet. Trade in any old dress that is in good shape, then go shopping for a good cause! Forward this on to any
girls who might have some goods in their closet. If you want to donate but don't have time to drop stuff off, feel free to give it Becca or Emily to take.
