College and career planning event set for Wednesday at South High

March 10, 2013

HAGERSTOWN — Washington County Public Schools will host its second annual College and Career Planning for K-12 Families event Wednesday at South Hagerstown High School, according to the school system’s website.

More than 600 people attended last year’s event, said Beth Moore, college readiness specialist for the school system.

This year’s event is from 5:30 to 9 p.m., Moore said.

The event includes panel discussions, workshops and professionals from various careers so parents and students can get answers to their questions about college and careers, according to www.wcps.k12.md.us.

This year, workshops are zoned, Moore said. For instance, the “plan” zone is aimed at high school students, and the “dream” zone is for elementary and middle school students, Moore said.

There will be 23 workshops and three panels, she said.
