Students and parents attended the CTC’s annual College Fair Oct. 28. Thirty-one colleges and four branches of the military participated with a variety of options for high school students. Career and College Adviser Ms. Krystal Brier advocates strongly for students to participate as well. 

“My biggest role is to promote it and make sure our student’s know that it is a big opportunity for them,” Ms. Brier said. 

Admissions Counselor Cam Young appeared as a representative for the University of Missouri at Kansas City. He gave an inviting welcome to each student that approached his booth. 

“My favorite thing is seeing students come up to the table and ask curious questions they’ve never had to before.” Mr. Young said. “I think it’s cool to be around a group of people who want to help kids to college.”

A+ student senior Josh Rieck took the time to attend his first event, having visited Metropolitan Community College and University of Central Missouri, both of which had participated in the fair. 

“It was helpful being able to see the different options I could go to and talking with advisor,” Rieck said. 

The college fair is a stepping stone for those beginning to branch away from high school and become their own people.
