Frontier High and Middle School hosted a school-wide college day Nov. 20. All students in grades seven through 12 attended four 30-minute sessions, including:
- Ohio Career Information System (OCIS) in the computer labs, where students created individual portfolio in which they can do interest inventories, career and college searches, resumes, and other related activities
- A presentation from Dan Durfee, Zane State College, on college programs to prepare for careers in the oil and gas industry
Frontier junior Tyler Gutberlet speaks with Lisa Slie about the metro rate at West Virginia Northern Community College in New Martinsville, W.Va.
- A presentation by Dan Jones of the Marietta Rotary on paying for college
- A discussion led by Amanda Haney Cech on what students could do now to begin preparing for college
- A college fair in the gym, with representatives from the US Army and Marines as well as Marietta College, National College, Ohio State Agricultural Technical Institute, Prestons Beauty Academy, Washington State Community College, West Virginia Northern Community College, West Virginia University, West Virginia University at Parkersburg, and Zane State College.
All activities were planned with the idea of students aware of how they could prepare themselves for college, no matter what their age or grade, and to expose students to programs and opportunities that they may not have been aware of.
