Selecting a college can be a laborious choice.
In an effort to help high school juniors and their parents navigate the maze of uncertainty and make an informed decision, WCHS is holding a college night this Monday, April 3. The event will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. in the auditorium.
Those in attendance will have a chance to win one of three $500 scholarships, along with other fabulous door prizes.
“This will give juniors and their parents information about the college process, financial aid, and scholarships,” said Shauna Seymour, college advisor at WCHS. “It will also allow them to meet with admissions counselors from some of our most popular colleges in the area.”
The event is free and open to juniors and their parents. Due to space limitations, no siblings please.
From 5 to 6:30 p.m., college representatives will have tables set up to provide information about their school. Pizza and drinks will be available.
There will be representatives from six colleges: UT-Knoxville, MTSU, Cumberland University, Motlow, Tennessee College of Applied Technology, and Tennessee Tech.
From 6:30 to 8 p.m., there will be a presentation about the college process and what to expect. Financial aid options and scholarship possibilities will be conveyed.
At 8 p.m., there will be a scholarship drawing and door prize raffle.
“We want to try and get the juniors to start thinking about college and the process before they start their senior year,” said Seymour. “The college-going process can be very overwhelming and we hope this event will help make the process a little easier for them as well as their parents.”
