Indian Lake juniors and seniors learned that the career opportunities are endless at the recent Logan County College Day event.
Students had the opportunity to speak with representatives from area 2-year and 4-year colleges and universities, technical schools and the military during the 38th annual event held at Benjamin Logan High School and sponsored by the Midwest Regional Educational Service Center.
ILHS senior Caitlyn Young says she saw some promising options.
“I learned that a lot more schools that are close to home have the degree I’m looking for, which is teaching special education. Some schools even offer free books and great scholarships for my gpa level, so that’s exciting.”
Logan County College Day is offered to upperclassmen from ILHS, along with Bellefontaine City, Benjamin Logan Local, Ohio Hi-Point Career Center, and Riverside Local Schools. A panel of speakers from two-year, four-year, state and private schools and the military also met with students to describe the various educational options and explain the importance of ACT and ASVAB scores. MRESC Youth Development Liaison Karen Sorreles says nearly 70 institutions were on-hand to meet with approximately 1200 local students.
