RHINELANDER - Paying for college can be difficult.

The Nicolet College Foundation wants to help students earn the degree they're
working for.

But now, the foundation is using a different way to connect students to
scholarships.

The foundation will now only accept scholarship applications online.

The online process can help students find more scholarships to apply for.

"We have so many more. Literally scholarship opportunities numbering in the
hundreds for students. For a small community college, I think that's something
to brag about," said Heather Schallock, Executive Director of the Nicolet
College Foundation.

The foundation has different types of scholarships available for all types of
students.

But not all students take advantage of scholarships.

"It's human nature to assume that doesn't apply to me, I'll never get it, I'm
not good enough, whatever label you want to put on it. I think it's easy to
assume that's for somebody else and my message is these can be for you," said
Schallock.

The scholarships come from donors that have personal ties to Nicolet.

The deadline to apply for scholarships is March 7th.

PHILLIPS - Many parents worry about their children being distracted while driving.

Students at Phillips High School got to learn about how hard it is to drive while impaired or distracted.

The Phillips Police Department and school district hosted The Save A Life Tour for students Friday afternoon. It teaches kids the negative impacts of impaired driving.

Students took turns in two different chairs to feel what distracted driving feels like.

"One is simulating being impaired or intoxicated, and it shows what happens while the students are driving that," said Phillips Police Department Lieutenant Al Cummings. "The other one is regarding distracted driving, and actually students need to answer text messages while they're driving."
