It's never too early for students to start gathering information on what they want to do after they graduate from high school. Some will be going on to college, while others may be looking for specialized training to enter the world of work. Regardless which path students may take, they will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from various institutions of learning, thanks to College Night 2012.
College Night 2012, hosted by Lee County Public Schools and the city of Fort Myers, is being held from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19 at the Harborside Event Center, 1375 Monroe St., Fort Myers.
A grant through the City of Fort Myers has helped defer the cost for the use of the venue for this event. This is a great example of Lee County governmental agencies working together to help our students.
College Night will feature over 100 representatives from different colleges, universities, art and culinary institutes as well as military academies. Some of the finest post-secondary institutions in the country will be represented. These representatives reserve a booth to display information pertaining to their institution and they are there to answer any questions students or their families may have.
While College Night is designed for 11th and 12th graders, it is free and open to the public.
