Seniors & Graduation Information - For scholarships to be printed in the graduation program insert, if they haven't been submitted already to a counselor please use the form that students can access when logged in to the NISD Portal at this link:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeaNvKLlbOPwxGxWK8gr6_vm5vwUGXba6VZDQydNIVBhQj8pQ/viewform?vc=0&c=0&w=1.  The deadline to submit this information to the campus is Friday, May 15.  Remember, we want to be able to list any scholarships seniors earned and were awarded, not just those you intend to use.
