Schmidt – Shaw
On Monday, September 25, juniors and seniors visited CCC for a college fair. There were several colleges from all over Nebraska, and even out of state colleges. The fair took place in CCC’s gymnasium.
Blue Hill Students had the opportunity to visit any college booth and learn more information about that college. A few of the colleges were University of Nebraska-Lincoln /Kearney /Omaha, Joseph’s College: Cosmetology, and South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
Many of the colleges had free items such as pens, and they also had information booklets for students to take home and share with parents. The booklets had cost, activities, and different information about the college’s programs and events.
The college representatives were respectable and quick on their feet explaining things to multiple schools’ students. Rylee Kohmetscher, Junior, eagerly stated, “They were very positive and energetic and were extremely helpful in recognizing their college’s strong suits.” While Britney Toepfer, Senior, wants to recognize UNK and UNL, “UNK and UNL were the best booths I went to because they were personable and explanatory.”
The students enjoyed the experience and were pushed into a great direction towards a better future. Going to the college fair at CCC-Hastings brought to light many opportunities for our students.
