Pay attention then to the announcement of the Hendricks College Network’s College and Career Fair on Thursday Feb. 24 at the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex in Danville, Ind. Workshops begin at 5p.m., and the fair runs 6-8:30p.m.
In addition to the 60+ colleges, universities, trade schools, military programs, and career organizations that will be represented in the fair, workshops on scholarships, financial aid, apprenticeships, and more are scheduled throughout the evening. Popular workshops include Financial Aid 101 and Essay Writing for College Admissions and Scholarships.
“So many scholarships have an essay component,” stated Hendricks College Network Director Cathy Bastin in a press release. “It is important for youth and adult students to learn how to best present themselves on paper for this process.”
An addition this year will be the live broadcast of Indiana Department of Education’s “College Night in Indiana” from 6-7p.m. as one of the workshop choices.
College and Career Night is not just for high school students. This annual event is fast becoming the hot spot for ANYONE looking for information on continuing his or her education or developing career. There will be information about an MBA program coming to Plainfield and other training opportunities for those of us who are considered non-traditional students.
The night is sponsored by the Hendricks College Network, Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex, Hendricks County Community Foundation, and Hendricks Regional Health, in addition to the area high schools.
