Henry plans for College Go Week

Plenty going on for seniors the week of Sept. 23


College Go Week is just around the corner (Sept. 23-27) and counselor Terry Henry has been planning this event for a year now. From college trips for seniors to the Onsite Application Day, this week is going to be the busiest yet.

Ben Davis is providing students with a lot of opportunities.

College Go Week is a week where students of all ages can plan for college completion and career success.

“Last year we got 13 million dollars in scholarship that students actually used. I hope to surpass that this year,” Henry said.

College Go Week has always done a good job on opening doors for students. This year seniors will have two free college trips where they could possibly get direct recruitment. There will also be more scholarship opportunities and grant workshops.

There will be a meeting for 21st century scholars about scholarship details but the date is still not set. Eight programs will be produce for students to get more college help.

Onsite Application Day will also be a big part of this year’s College Go Week. Students can apply for colleges and scholarships. They can also ask questions and get more knowledge about steps they need to take to reach their certain goals.

College Go Week will be help on Sept. 23-27.

“We might have some contest but I’m working on getting some prices,” Henry said.

Although planning has been very detailed this year, some things still remain a surprise and other details are still being worked out. Henry is working hard to make this year’s College Go Week the best yet and hopes to reach his goal. Every student should take advantage of these great opportunites.
