Thursday evening, March 16, was a very exciting time for White County High School rising seniors and their parents. WCHS hosted its 4th annual “First Senior Meeting.” The meeting consisted of a wealth of information to help aid the students in making early plans for their upcoming senior year and post-secondary opportunities. The event ran concurrent with the White County High School Parent-Teacher Conference to better accommodate parents and other family members. The meeting featured several different speakers addressing such topics as: upcoming deadlines, senior pictures, Project Graduation, scholarships, and financial aid.Following this portion of the evening, students and parents were encouraged to attend an additional session involving more specific questions directed to a variety of post-secondary institutions. Exhibitors included: TTU, TTU Engineering, Motlow State Community College, Vol State Community College, TCAT-Livingston and Crossville campuses, and the TN Army National Guard. Representatives were available to answer questions about admission requirements, specific deadlines, scholarships, programs of study, cost, etc. There was a drawing for three $500 scholarships. The scholarships were made possible by ECMC through the AdviseTN program. At the conclusion of the evening, parents and students were asked to complete a short survey providing much needed feedback that will aid in planning future meetings.
WCHS was very pleased with the evening’s attendance of approximately 315 students and their parents. This event was made possible, in part, by funds received through the TnACHE-SEED grant, ECMC and the AdviseTN program.
