ATTENTION!!! All local scholarships must be filled out and turned into Mr. Allen by March 16th (regardless of the date listed on the scholarship). Please, when you fill out these scholarships, make sure you type them, not hand write them. The committees want them typed and neat. Use good bond paper. Good luck!

Falcon Managment Group, Inc.
The Pepsi-Cola Company has selected Plains High School as one of the few schools in the country to receive the Tuition Funding Sources Program and access to TuitionFundingSources.com during the 2006-2007 school year.
Pepsi has paid all access fees so that students at PHS can register and login to the TFS website free of charge. This private website contains the world's largest scholarship database - at least five to ten times larger than any other source of scholarship information along with coolege and career information.
Unlike other scholarship search websites, the TFS website does not collect student's names and other personal information for resale making it the only safe place to search for scholarships on the intenet. And there is no advertising - not even for Pepsi-Cola products - even though Pepsi pays for the program.
Take advantage of this great opportunity. Visit the TFS website by clicking on the link below, click Login then the "first time user" link. Select the state and school you attend. Enter your email address for your username and create a memorable password
