|The Heart of Appalachia Talent Search (HATS) Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Education, is one of the federal “TRIO Programs”. Our program provides assistance to students who want to continue their education after high school and have the ability to do so. Our services are described throughout the HATS website. All services are provided at the school, at times convenient to the students, (at least twice per month, weather permitting). Parents are welcome to meet with our staff any time we are at the school, at our office, or by scheduling an appointment.The HATS Application is in Adobe PDF format. The application requires the attention of both the student and a parent/guardian. Feel free to print the application, complete the required information, attach requested materials, and mail to: Heart of Appalachia Talent Search Program, One John Marshall Drive, Gullickson Hall 212 I, Huntington, WV, 25755-2195-104.Please note:
Please return the Application, signed Federal Income Tax forms (if applicable), and other documents if required. Students selected as HATS Program participants will be notified in a timely manner. All services are FREE! We hope you will take advantage of the additional support and guidance provided by the Heart of Appalachia Talent Search Program.
