From Mrs. Melicer Jones:
Mr. Black, Mr. Johnson, Mr. Schuyler, Mr. Powell and myself took 20 students (7 Seniors and 13 Juniors) to the HBCU Festival held at TC Williams High School in Alexandria, VA on February 18, 2017. These students were so excited and nervous about this trip.
The seniors anxiously gathered all of their documents and were prepared to meet with college for on-site admissions. I am proud to say that 5 of the 7 seniors were accepted on the spot. One other senior was already accepted to the schools of her choice, but wanted to attend to get information on scholarships. The last senior interviewed with his college of choice and will receive an answer once he sends his SAT scores.
The Juniors were nervous as well and shared that it was a great and memorable experience. They attended seminars and was able to take away important nuggets to help with preparing for college and for the visit to this festival next year.
Attached is a picture from the event. Just wanted to share our experience.
