FYI Kentucky Residents: Know of a student approaching junior or senior year of high school? If so, it’s about that time for them to start thinking about their immediate future: college. The Council on Postsecondary Education and the Kentucky Department of Education are sponsoring the 24th Annual Academically Proficient African-American High School Junior and Senior Conference. The conference will take place on June 17-18 at Morehead State University and will cover a wide range of college-planning topics from financial aid and scholarships to selecting a college and a career. Additionally, college representatives of Kentucky Institutions will be on site following the sessions.
Besides the great advice, one of the best parts of the conference is that it’s free. (There is a $12 per person fee if families need overnight housing). To participate, students must be classified as juniors and seniors during the 2011–2012 school year.
