Fullington Prepares Students for College


On Wednesday, October 9, speech and English teacher Carol Fullington will be traveling with her dual credit public speaking class and AP language and composition class to Indiana University in Bloomington for a field trip.

Students will leave Paoli High School at 8:50 a.m. and will not return until 3:10 p.m. During the field trip, students will meet with an admissions counselor about what they look for in applications, take a formal campus tour and learn to use a research library and its resources. In order for students to be eligible, they must be enrolled in one of the two participating classes and have passing grades in all of their classes.

“I expect my students will learn more about what college admissions offices look for on applications. I expect my students to learn what types of questions they should be asking when they start visiting colleges of interest. I also expect students will learn to effectively use the academic resources available to them to further their success in college,” said Fullington.
