Memorial Focuses on College Readiness

Students in Memorial Junior High School’s Leadership Development Club recently took a trip to the Big Apple College Fair at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan.

Led by guidance counselor Laura Mesa, students toured the venue and learned about different colleges, the college application process, financial aid requirements, scholarships, academic programs and campus life. College representatives fielded the students’ questions, provided them with brochures and informational materials, and encouraged them to follow up as they move forward in the college decision process.
