Staff will be on hand to provide information on college costs and financial aid options.  Families interested in getting help with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid can get assistance with that between 5 and 6:30 p.m.    

 

Instructors will also be available to discuss the Conservation Careers Camp for students in grades 8-12 which is scheduled to be held this summer at ECC in Rolla.
