Warren County High School will be holding its annual College Fair next Wednesday, Sept. 7 at McMinnville Civic Center from 5 to 7 p.m.
Students and parents are welcome to come and talk with representatives from universities, community colleges, technical schools, and the military.
“Warren County High School is the host but this is open to all students in this area,” said WCHS scholarship coordinator Charlotte Vaughn. “They don’t have to live in Warren County to attend and they don’t have to be seniors either. Anyone who would like more information about college or the military is welcome to come.”
Vaughn says around 40 representatives are traditionally in attendance. Motlow, MTSU, Tennessee Tech, UT-Knoxville, Carson-Newman, ETSU, Austin Peay, The Art Institute, Air Force and Marines are just a few of the schools which have given confirmation they will attend.
Vaughn says it’s a great opportunity for sophomores and juniors to gather information and begin formulating a plan about what they might like to do after high school.
“There will be a wealth of information available,” said Vaughn. “I can give them some of the information myself, but it’s just better if they talk directly to the representative of each college and get it from them.”
In addition to colleges, Eric Farmer is scheduled to be in attendance to provide information on lottery scholarships. Lottery scholarships are now worth $4,000 a year for students attending a four-year school, and $2,000 a year for students attending a two-year school such as Motlow.
Applications for other financial aid will also be available.
