College and career coaching was offered to students from all three Whitley County high schools yesterday. The event was part of a state-wide initiative, College Success Coalition. Connecting students with community leaders, education representatives and career coaches, the day was geared to help high school juniors make better choices.
Students participating in workshops were encouraged to take notes, which will then be reviewed with guidance staff at the high schools. During the lunch period, juniors were split into small groups where they held informal conversations with adults from the community.
High schoolers had the opportunity to ask questions and gain personal insight from the adults while the groups had lunch.
