Thousands of Fort Worth ISD Students, Parents Look to the Future on 'College Night'
Fort Worth, Texas - More than 5,000 high school students, along with their parents, attended Fort Worth ISD’s 2012 annual “College Night” on Monday, September 17. College Night was held in the Texas Room at the Amon Carter, Jr. Exhibit Hall.
We'll post photos of College Night participants soon.
The Fort Worth ISD “College Night” was a veritable mall of educational opportunities, with just over 270 colleges, universities and institutions from around Texas and across the nation ready to recruit new students.
College Night offered “one-stop shopping” for higher education by also providing financial aid workshops along with scholarship and college applications.
"College Night was well attended by colleges & universities from across our country and our students and parents were engaged in meaningful conversations about post-secondary opportunities," said Anita Perry, director of academic advisement. "This event continues to support college and career readiness initiatives throughout Tarrant County".
Invitations for this event were sent to all FWISD high school students, as well as those attending parochial schools and surrounding school districts.
In addition to meeting with school representatives, students and parents participated in informative workshops about “Financing a College Education,” “Scholarships in Tarrant County,” or College Admissions 101.”
