Counselor's Websites

Greetings Seniors, Juniors and Parents!

 I know this is a very exciting time for you all, and I am thrilled to get to

be a small part of it as the new Counselor for Kress ISD! It is never too

early to start looking for and applying for scholarships, and I have received

some great information already that I wanted to pass along! Some of the

deadlines are as soon as August 31, so look quickly!

 I will be happy to help you in any way I can. Send your students to school

with questions, give me a call at the office (806-684-2652 ext. 103), or e-

mail me at angie.gauntt@region16.net .

I would love to have a list of parents to e-mail future scholarship

announcements and other Senior information to. If you would like to be on

that list, please e-mail me at the address above and I will add you to it.

 Have a great day!

 Angie Gauntt
