Senior Brag Sheet

A brag sheet is very similar to a student resume – it highlights your accomplishments, key experiences, leadership skills and employment throughout your high school career. We use brag sheets to fill out letter of recommendations for colleges, scholarships, and / or jobs. Your counselor or teacher may ask for a brag sheet to write the best possible recommendation. Please contact your counselor in a timely matter if you need a letter of recommendation.
