Another Successful Annual College and Career Fair

IMG_7935.jpgNearly 1,000 district students and their parents discussed college and career opportunities with more than 100 colleges and organizations at last week's Annual College and Career Fair held at Mills High School. Students were able to talk to university representatives while also learning about financial aid and loan programs for college, and career and technical education. This year's event was yet again a successful way to reach families and students about the many options available for their future path beyond high school.
