This month a few dozen students participated in a two day First Generation College Student program hosted by College Guidance Counselor Tom Woodford. Mr. Woodford received a grant to offset costs of taking these students on a tour of some Central Ohio schools. They spent time at Columbus State, Ohio State and Capital University. These students will be the first in their families to pursue a post high school degree. On the second day of the program students and parents met with different college representatives who talked about the benefits of two year schools versus four year programs, and private versus public schools.
Preparing students to be Ready for Tomorrow means making sure they know what opportunities are ahead of them, and giving them the tools to accomplish those opportunities. Going to college for some of the first generation students may feel out of reach, but this program gives them the tools and information needed to push forward.
