Boyd Christian School hosts a College Fair Day


     F.C. Boyd Christian School recently held a College Fair Day for their high school students.  Representatives from the following colleges were on hand for the event:      Freed-Hardeman University, University of TNKnoxville, University of TNChattanooga, Lipscomb University, Motlow State Community College, Tennessee Tech University, Middle TN State University, and Austin Peay State University. 

     Marco DiLuca, Admissions Counselor for Freed-Hardeman University, said “I am thankful for College Fair Days because it gives me the opportunity to recruit students in person.”  The college representatives talked with the students and provided admissions and scholarship information.  Allison Stiles, BCS Guidance Counselor, gave all of the freshman, sophomore, and junior students a packet including ways to jumpstart college planning and an action plan for each year of high school.  The seniors were given a college expectations & study skills guide, and reminders about admissions/scholarship deadlines.  The parents of the students were also invited and given a parents’ practical guide to college and financial aid information. 

     The students were very excited about the event and enjoyed meeting with the representatives.  Junior student, Caleb Rigsby, said “This was very informative and I’m starting on my college applications this month!”  Currently all of Boyd’s high school seniors have plans to attend college, excluding one student who plans to enlist in the Air Force.  Boyd considered the College Fair Day to be a huge success and is very grateful to all who participated.
