Texas Scholars

1Let this slide play and introduce yourself to students.Mention your name, what business/organization you represent, what you do there, and why you are here: I am here today to present a program called Utah Scholars. This program will help you prepare for college and the workforce after high school, which in turn will help you become self-sustaining adults. I will also tell you how you can earn free money to help you pay for college.

Utah System of Higher EducationThat 70% of the jobs that will be available to you when you graduate high school dont even exist yet?Did you know?Kind of like

2Did you know that 70% of jobs that may be available to you after high school have not even been invented yet!

Question: Can you name some jobs that were perhaps around when your grandparents were your age that arent around today?

Some answers: telephone operator, gas station attendant, assembly line worker, factory worker many of these jobs have been replaced by machines.

So, jobs that once had purpose and use are no longer needed and are disappearing. Many of these jobs that are disappearing did not require high skills or education. You were trained, and you did it.

Question: That said, what ARE some jobs that are appearing today or even in the near future that perhaps didnt exist even 20 years ago?

Answers: cell phone programming, computer software programmer, anything to do with technology, graphic design, video game tester, jobs in the medical field, business, and engineering to name a few.

[Give examples from your own experience of how technology and economic change have replaced the old way of doing things]

How many of you have seen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Lets talk about what happened to Charlies dad.Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Charlies dad works a low skilled, low paying job.Because of economic growth, Charlies dad lost his job to a machine.Because Charlies dad had unique skills, he was hired at better pay to fix the machine.Utah System of Higher Education3

Charlies Dads Job $7.25 x 40 hrs/wk $290.00 x 52 wks/yr$15,080.00 yearToothpaste Capper (minimum wage)

$15.30 x 40 hrs/wk $612.00 x 52 wks/yr$31,824.00 yearToothpaste Machine Mechanic (skilled labor)You choose!Utah System of Higher EducationSources: UtahFutures.org4So! Given what happened to Charlies dad lets examine how having education and skills allows you to step up to better pay. Compare a minimum wage job in the slide with skilled labor. Can students see the difference? High school is a critical period in your life.Prepare Now!WORKING LIFE46 YEARS High School141824707090Why worry about this now?18-23College

RetireUtah System of Higher Education5According to government projections, most of you will live to be more than 80 years of age and you will spend about 50 years in the workforce. Wouldnt you prefer to be in a job that you like AND get paid well to do instead of a job you hate? To do so, you need to take the right steps to prepare yourself now. These steps include taking the right courses, going to class every day, participating, and learning.Therefore, the next four years are the most critical time of your life. What you do in 9th-12th grade will determine where you go on to college and/or training, and what job you will have for the next 50 years of your life.

Utah System of Higher EducationUtah Scholars vs. Utah HS Graduation Requirements

Here is the Utah Scholars Core Course of Study compared to what is already required of you if you want to graduate from high school. Notice that many of the requirements fall in line with the classes youre already required to take.

The Utah Scholars Core Course of Study asks you to do a little bit more than whats required to graduate from high school in order to be better prepared for college and the work force. You dont want to spend extra time and money taking remedial college courses because you took a break your senior year. 11

Students pay nearly $700 each for a remedial course in college!What is remediation?What could you buy with $700?

Dell Inspiron 15R Series 15 Laptop $700 online 50 CC Moped Sunny Motor Scooters w/ FREE trunk and windshield $699.00 (scooterdepot.us)4-Day Carnival Imagination Cruise $650-$700 (shipcruise.org)Real Salt Lake Season Tickets $565-$750 (depends on section)

Utah System of Higher EducationQuestion: What does the word remedial mean? What does it mean to take a remedial class?

Taking a remedial class means taking a class to help you refresh your memory or give you extra help in a certain subject because you aren't ready to move on to the next level. For example, if you were in Algebra 2 at the end of your junior year, you would then ideally move on to Pre-Calculus your senior year. However, if you didn't do very well in Algebra 2 and didn't feel you were ready to take the next level, you would be placed in a remedial Math class before moving on to the next level of Math. In high school, it doesn'tt cost money to take a remedial class. However, in college it not only costs you money, but valuable time as well.

In college, if you are not prepared for the classes they offer, you will be placed in a remedial class to prepare you for the level you SHOULD be at to earn college credit towards a degree. Remedial classes do not move you towards completing your degree as they are not actually college-level courses. Not to mention, all classes on the college level cost the same amount of money, whether it counts towards your degree or not. So, lets look at this slide [read the statistics on the slide].

Question: What could YOU buy with $700 dollars? Lets look at a few things! 12Imagine this pizza is your monthly income*Remember: Average earnings for high school graduates only,vary between $18,800-$25,900/year. $25,900/year$2,160/month

Utah System of Higher Education

Youre Hired!

$25,900.00

13Lets talk more about what life will be like after high school. Lets imagine that I am going to hire you for $25,900 ($2,160 a month) right after you graduate. Take my word for it, thats an excellent salary for someone who has just finished high school and has little job experience. Question: What sort of things will you have to pay for when you graduate and move out of your parents house?(students will list a number of things)

Lets start taking all those expenditures out of your pizza or out of your monthly income.

Note: The following figures are conservative. Apartment rent may be lower or higher in different areas of the state. Food budget is figured using what students think it costs to eat fast food three meals per day--usually $10/day multiplied by 30 days. Car payments are figured for a used car. Car insurance is for liability only. Cell Phone = (plans vary this is very basic) Utilities include gas, electricity, water. Sometimes these are included in the rent, but then rent is higher. Students may argue $50 for clothing is too low. You can tell them they can spend more for clothing, but must cut elsewhere. Students may think they wont have medical costs because they pay for insurance. Note this figure includes everything from headache over-the-counter medication to insurance co-pays and prescriptions. Furniture assumes students inherit cast-offs from family and friends. Otherwise, $75 for rental payments leaves their apt. practically vacant. By the end, students realize $25K will not go as far as theyd thought.

[pick out a few universities/colleges etc to mention. Add your own experiences at the institutions you attended and why you chose that institution. Perhaps mention how much you paid for your education].

Theres no denying that college is expensive. We already know that if you go to college, your earning potential increases. THUS, you will earn the money you spend at college back as you enter the workforce.

And if you think education seems expensive in Utah, what about out of state tuition or Private schools like Harvard? [click to bring up out of state costs]29Step #4: Search for ways to pay for college!Regents ScholarshipUtah System of Higher EducationAt last, step 4Search ways to pay for college!

To help students pay for college, there are a great many resources they can utilize. One of these resources connected with their Utah Scholars golden ticket is the Regents Scholarship.

[Hand out UESP brochure or have a student help you]

Students who complete the Utah Scholars core course of study during grades 9-12, with a minimum cumulative GPA of a 3.0, no individual core course grade lower than a C and submit an ACT score may earn the Regents Scholarship Base Award worth up to $1000.

Students who complete the Utah Scholars core course of study during grades 9-12, with a minimum cumulative GPA of a 3.5, no individual core course grade lower than a B and submit an ACT score of a 26 or higher may qualify for the Regents Base Award and Regents Exemplary award which includes the $1,000 on time payment PLUS a renewal award for up to 4 semesters to be determined on an annual basis.

*Students must graduate from a Utah High School*Awards can only be used at a Utah institution of higher learning.

In addition if a student is the beneficiary of a Utah Educational Savings Plan (UESP) account an additional supplemental award may be awarded. In order to maximize the supplemental award a total ($400), a student must contribute a minimum of $100 each year from grades 9-12,starting when they are 14 and on through 17. If a student does this, when they graduate they will be awarded the $400 supplemental award in addition to retrieving the funds they were contributing over 4 years. Essentially, a student contributes $400 over 4 years, they get another $400. The student gets $800 minimum at the end of their senior year.

[student can contribute more than $100 each year however the supplemental award maxes out at $400].

[student must contribute a minimum of $100 a year.]30Why is going to college important? So, why is having unique skills a big deal? Why should you take the Utah Scholars Core Course of Study?Who is eligible for the Regents Scholarship?Lets review!
