An incentive was recently put in place that helped encourage more than 100 high school students to either filled out federal student aid forms or apply to colleges. 

Senior Mya White was rewarded a 32-inch television during college application week, and classmate Cody Daughertee won a mini refrigerator at the FAFSA frenzy held in October at Poplar Bluff High School. During a College Fair later hosted on campus, Mya was informed she had been accepted at one of the higher education institutions she applied to: the St. Louis College of Pharmacy. 

The raffle items were paid for by the Missouri College Advising Corps, which established a new position at R-I this school year through a partnership between the University of Missouri and AmeriCorps. College and Career Advisor Khaiuna Ayetimiyi, a PBHS Class of 2013 graduate, is stationed in the counseling office to “help students succeed after high school,” she explained.
