  • If a scholarship requires a copy of your confidential counselor recommendation letter, please bring your application and all the required materials to the school counseling office in a pre-addressed envelope with postage affixed so it may be mailed from CHRHS. We cannot give you a copy of your confidential counselor recommendation.
