College & Career Night

Rob Pipher, Special Contributor

We are excited to be hosting our annual College and Career Fair next Monday night, October 7th from 6:00 – 7:30 PM in the main gym.  I am attaching a flyer for the event along with a list of the colleges, military, trade schools and apprenticeship programs who have confirmed that they will be there (we are still adding schools daily).  We will have 2 college preparations presentations given by an admissions representative from SIUE.  It is the same presentation, so you don’t need to go to both.  We have also added 2 presentations given by a representative from the SWIC Industrial Arts program, discussing what you need to know about training available as you go into the workforce.  Again, the 2 presentations will be the same.

The fair is open to any high school student from any school to attend, but luckily our students don’t have to go far.  Notice there will be some great door prizes including a TV and Refrigerator which would be perfect for a dorm room.

A BIG thanks to Mrs. Guebert for all of her work setting up this great event for students in our region!
