There’s a new location for Warren County High School’s annual College Night. The event will not be held at McMinnville Civic Center. Instead, it will be held on the WCHS campus in the main lobby area.
“I’m sure it came down to paying something to rent that facility, or paying nothing to have it here,” said WCHS scholarship coordinator Sonja Dillard, who is in her first year organizing the event.
College Night is set for Monday, Oct. 7, from 5 to 7 p.m. The event is billed as a one-stop place to gain an abundance of college information – from financial aid to admission requirements.
“I’ve invited over 60 schools and so far I have over 35 who have confirmed,” said Dillard. “Eric Farmer will be here explaining the Hope Scholarship associated with the lottery and he’s a wealth of knowledge. That alone is worth coming for.”
Public and private, four-year and two-year schools will have representatives on hand. This will include vocational colleges, as well as the military.
A few of those attending are Austin Peay State University, ETSU, Motlow State Community College, MTSU, Tennessee Tech, UT-Chattanooga, UT-Knoxville, UT-Martin and Tennessee College of Applied Technology at McMinnville.
