NEW! SCHOLLY APP FOR GRADUATION AND COLLEGE / CAREER PLANNING
Byng JOM Seniors and Juniors have received a wonderful resource courtesy of a grant through Chickasaw Nation. The Scholly App is a tool to help students with financial resources and college / career planning. While the app usually costs $4 per month per student, all JOM students will receive access for free.
HONOR CLUBS – Many tribes provide Honor Clubs to recognize, identify, and reward high achieving students who are tribal citizens. Students may receive recognition for outstanding academic achievement, successful participation in athletics, arts, and other student organizations, and exemplary citizenship. Parents are responsible for coordinating nominations with a school official and submitting application to their individual tribe's Student Honors Club. For additional information, please CLICK on the following tribal links:
Other tribes not listed above also provide Honor Clubs. As we receive information, we will update the list. Until then, for more information, please contact your tribe directly and ask about student resources, including Honor Clubs.
