Believe in Ohio is a free program from The Ohio Academy of Science to help students understand what job opportunities are available here in Ohio in STEM-related fields. All students in grades 9-12 have the opportunity to attend a 1-day session to learn more about local jobs, college majors, and careers in STEM-related fields. The forum will be from 9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 11 at Lorain County Community College in Elyria. A bus will provide transportation to and from Northwestern High School. This event is free and open to all high school students. Spots are limited and students must sign-up in the Guidance Office no later than Thursday, October 2, in order to attend.
College fairs are a fantastic way to pick up a lot of information from many different colleges at once. You can speak to college representatives from community colleges, 2-year and 4-year colleges, public schools and private schools. They are free to attend and a great way to start or continue your college search process. Here are some upcoming college fairs to consider attending:
1. Wednesday, October 8: College Fair for Students with Learning Disabilities at Gahanna Lincoln High School Cafeteria from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. Address is 140 South Hamilton Road, Gahanna, Ohio. This is your opportunity to explore various programs and you can compare/contrast the wide range of accommodations. For more information, contact Phyllis Solove at 614.478.5500 x126.
Attention Senior student-athletes: Seniors involved with at least one varsity sport, who has a 3.0 gpa or better, and who are an active leader in our school/community are invited to apply for the Wendy's High School Heisman Award by October 3, 2014.
