The Midwest Regional Educational Service Center invites area high school juniors, seniors and their parents to participate in the 37th annual Logan County College Day on Sept. 15 from 8:30 to 11 a.m. at Benjamin Logan High School. This educational opportunity is offered to high school students from Bellefontaine City, Benjamin Logan Local, Indian Lake Local, Ohio Hi-Point Career Center and Riverside Local Schools.

Speakers from two-year, four-year, state, private schools and the military will speak to students and describe the various educational options. The high school students will have an opportunity for a short question and answer session with the speakers prior to meeting with admission counselors.
Scheduled speakers are Alyson Harruff-OSU (Lima), Virginia Hensley-Cedarville U., SFC Joseph Palumbo-US Army National Guard, and Rose Reinhart-Rhodes State.

Pick up information and bring it home to read!
Spend some time at some of the institutions you may not be familiar with, one of them might be exactly what you are looking for!
Your parents and other interested adults may attend any session.
