FBISD College and Career Readiness Advisors prepare seniors for next steps following high school

EHS CCR - Door Contest

 

FORT BEND ISD (December 21, 2017) – Fort Bend ISD high schools were among those throughout the state to accept the Generation Texas Month 2017 challenge by hosting college application and financial aid activities, events and outreach to prepare seniors for their next steps following high school graduation.
Generation Texas challenged schools to join in the statewide effort to encourage high school seniors to complete and submit college and financial aid applications, including the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) and an application (ApplyTexas) to at least one institution of higher education.
Hightower High School accepted the challenge by hosting a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Information Night and an FAFSA workshop for students and parents. Also, during benchmark testing for grades 9-11, Hightower seniors took part in a college application workshop, researched scholarship apps and completed the Graduate for Mas Challenge (presented by the Taco Bell Foundation and Get Schooled to empower teens to follow their path to reach their personal, educational and career goals).
Elkins High School also accepted the challenge by hosting several activities to promote college and career readiness. Social studies classes attended a panel discussion to receive educational and career advice from area professionals. EHS’ Science and Engineering/CTE Departments joined the District’s CCR/Counseling Department in hosting the UH Biomedical Engineering workshop on campus. EHS also welcomed parents to campus to present business workshops for students. The parents shared advice on what it takes to operate businesses and personal success stories. EHS also hosted a Generation TxMonth Challenge Door Decorating Contest for teachers that named three winners – Maeamour Jones, 1st place; Mary Font, 2nd place; and Jodi Porter, 3rd place.
