Perquimans County High School has slowly been bringing students back to campus for classes, club meetings, and other in-person events as vaccinations rise and COVID case counts shrink.

Some of these in-person events include scholarship interviews. We feel so lucky to have lots of local scholarships - so far this year, our seniors have collected almost $150,000 in local scholarship money alone!

I love the strong sense of community here!

Happy Friday!!
Spring Cleaning has started a little early this month in Ms. Anderson’s office. This week, I have made it a priority to get this table organized. As students come into the classroom, I love to keep this table updated with college tips and information for students. Throughout the week, I have managed to bring some new things into the office and get organized!

Happy Wednesday, it’s Tia!
I am a proud alumna of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I graduated in May of 2020 with my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work.

My college experience was definitely rewarding in many ways. During college, I was an active member within NSCS and Phi Alpha Honor Society. Through this experience, I met a lot of new people and collaborated with those within the community. My college experience has truly impacted the way I advise students but also support students as they prepare for life after high school. As college adviser, I am committed to being a resource within the school that allows students to feel comfortable applying and attending college.

Good Morning! My name is Tia Anderson, First-Year Adviser serving Bunn High School in Franklin County, NC. Throughout the week, I will be sharing my experience as a college adviser and all the great work we do for our students. ...
