Welcome to WSU Early Outreach
Clarkston GEAR UP Site Director, Pat Sobotta, and Lead Tutor, Jane Ann Brewer, traveled to Cheney, WA on Tuesday September 17th for the 2013 Fall Counselor Workshop. Also in attendance from Clarkston High School were counselors Kathi Carlson and Janet Beitelspacher. The morning began at 8:00 am with a welcome and then updates from the independent colleges of Washington. We then heard from the community and technical colleges in attendance about changes to programs as well as admissions information. After a quick break the Washington Student Achievement Council and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction both spoke. Following lunch the public baccalaureate colleges and universities in attendance each gave updates on admissions, programs, statistics, as well as fielded questions.
This day was so beneficial in helping our OVP II seniors prepare for the upcoming college applications and admissions process. At lunch, the GEAR UP staff and counselors had the opportunity to discuss programs such as WOIS and the senior parent meeting, a great time for networking. The day was overall a very beneficial experience in helping prepare our seniors for their last year at CHS!
