On Tuesday, November 30, PHS will be hosting a college and career fair for all high school students to attend. The event will take place in the upper gym from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., and between 30 and 50 colleges and businesses will be in attendance. This event was put into works by College Advising Corps Adviser Cody Martin.
“It is a really weird time of the year for seniors because most of them have already submitted applications, but this is a chance for them to look and make sure they didn’t miss any colleges. It is also really geared towards juniors who need to start thinking about [college]. It is a really good opportunity for them to learn more not just about college but about entering the workforce as well,” said Martin.
In addition to Paoli students, the event will also be open to the surrounding schools in hopes of exposing as many students as possible to all of the possibilities post-high school. It is an opportunity for any student to learn more about their options after graduation.
“I think [the fair] could benefit a lot of kids, not just Paoli’s. I am so excited about what’s to come,” said Principal Dr. Sherry Wise.
