First Annual College Connections Event
On Wednesday, October 25, Northtown hosted representatives from 12 of the 17 participating schools from our new district initiative College Connections. Students were presented with a packet of scholarship offers ranging from $4,000 to $72,000; to date this group of seniors has been offered over $29 million from these schools.
After introductory comments about College Connections, college representatives spoke to students and their parents in the auditorium highlighting key programs, application deadlines, and unique aspects of their respective institutions. The evening concluded with a college fair in the gymnasium where students and parents spole with the various representatives.
Many students expressed excitement about discovering new options for their continued education.
