BL Class of 2019 Scholarship Offers Top $25 Million
Bishop Lynch High School’s Class of 2019 is a record-setting group. These 247 Friar seniors amassed more than $25 million in scholarship offers from colleges and universities across the country – a new school record. Sixty-one percent of the senior class reported earning one or more scholarships with an average scholarship amount per student of $169,695.
BL President Chris Rebuck is particularly proud of this senior class.
“Our senior class has worked extremely hard over the last four years both academically and in the fine arts and athletic realms. These scholarship dollars represent a strong academic commitment from our Friars. Their college preparatory education here at Bishop Lynch has paved the way for the next step of their educational journey,” said Rebuck.
Bishop Lynch has a robust college advisement program that includes Naviance Family Connection, college planning and preparation programs, College 101 summer sessions, and access to search engine eScholarshipsUSA via BL’s campus subscription. In addition, more than 300 college admissions counselors visited the Bishop Lynch campus during the 2019-20 school year.
Dr. Bob Iden is Bishop Lynch’s college advisor and offers his congratulations to the Class of 2019.
“I’ve enjoyed working with these senior students over the past few years. They’ve worked hard in the classroom and they’ve been diligent during the scholarship application process,” Dr. Iden said. “It’s paid off in a big way to make college more affordable.”
BL Principal Dr. Chad Riley commends the Class of 2019 on their incredible achievement.
“Congratulations to the Bishop Lynch Class of 2019! This sizable scholarship amount is a testament to both the academic rigors of Bishop Lynch and the senior students’ commitment to academic excellence, as well as leadership positions and extracurricular pursuits,” said Dr. Riley.
Bishop Lynch students have earned nearly $200 million in scholarship offers since 2010. Bishop Lynch High School’s Class of 2019 will graduate May 19.
