Pitt State to Hand Out Scholarships

Come Take A Picture with "Gus" the Gorilla


Any Galena High School senior that is interested in attending Pittsburg State University next fall, and possibly winning a $1,000 scholarship to PSU, needs to come watch as our GHS Bulldog football team takes on the Caney Valley Bullpups on Friday, October 1st with kickoff slated for 7:00 P.M.  Starting at 6:30, and during the first half of the game, Pittsburg State University will have a table display set up in the southwest corner of the track area for any student interested in wanting more information about Pitt State.  Any Galena High School SENIOR that is interested in attending PSU next fall will need to visit with, and sign up with, Scott Donaldson, PSU Head of Admissions, at the PSU table to have a chance of winning one of the two $1000 scholarships that will be presented on the field during halftime.  GHS Seniors must be in attendance during the game and must sign up at the PSU table before halftime to be eligible to win!   

PSU’s mascot, “Gus” the Gorilla, will also be in attendance that night so any student, regardless of their age, can meet Gus and get their picture taken with him.  PSU will also have t-shirts and other giveaways for those students who take the opportunity to visit with him.  Even though the scholarships will be presented to only a couple of our seniors, other high school students are welcomed and encouraged to visit with Scott about their future.

We would like to thank Pittsburg State University and Scott Donaldson for helping provide these scholarships for two of our Galena High School Class of 2022 Seniors!

Go Bulldogs and Go Gorillas!
