Alisa Kearl is East's Scholarship Advisor. Make an appointment today!
Students, if you have received any scholarship offers, even if you choose to not accept them, please report them to Alisa Kearl, Scholarship Advisor in the Counseling Center. We need to keep an accurate report of all scholarships and awards for each year. This report goes to the district to show what an awesome school we are and how brilliant our student body is. This includes all athletic, leadership, service, diversity, academic, private, and college scholarships. Your effort is much appreciated as self-reporting is often our only means of discovery.
