ON THE WAY TO COLLEGE

When is a good time to start preparing for college? The answer is Now! No matter what age your children are, it is never too early to start thinking about their education. At Gail Borden Library, on Monday, February 10, from 6-8 p.m. parents are invited to learn about the important role they play in helping their student prepare for a successful experience in higher education. The priority of school work, financial aid and cultural perceptions of education will be topics of discussion. Plenty of time will be dedicated to questions from the audience as well! The presenter is Dianha Ortega-Ehreth, Executive Director of the Youth Leadership Academy, a non-profit organization serving students in the community who wish to gain access to a college education. She has a professional background in college admissions, is a certified FAFSA expert by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission and has been working with young people for over 20 years.

The event will be held in the Elgin Room in Gail Borden Public Library and is sponsored by School District u-46, Renz Center, Youth Leadership Academy and Gail Borden Public Library. For more information about this free program, call Ricardo Gasca at 847-742-3545 x264.
