An estimated 4,000 students and their parents attended the 2018 College & Career Fair at Golden Valley High School on Thursday Sept. 20.
The annual event is hosted by the Career & College Readiness department of the William S. Hart Union High School District.
Over 110 universities and colleges had representatives on hand to tell prospective students about their programs, campuses and college life. In addition, representatives from the military as well as technical schools and College of the Canyons were also present to talk to students and families.
“The College and Career Fair provides opportunities to all students to learn about their post-secondary next steps, whether that’s to go on to a university, a community college, a technical school, an apprenticeship or a trade, as well as learning about the career fields they will be preparing for by going on to that post-secondary preparation,” Hart School District Career Technical Education director Dr. Mariane Doyle said.
Students and parents were also able to attend breakout sessions with topics that included out-of-state colleges and financial aid.
