2022-2023 Bright Futures Scholarship Handbook  

If you are applying for any scholarships, especially any level &/or type of Bright Futures, community service hours are required. 


All 12th graders that have submitted a HCHS green community service hour form have been posted to Focus. 


Each senior has received a blank HCHS service form this year.  It has also been available all years in Guidance and is still available for pick up in the Guidance lobby during the school day.
