Summit High School is hosting a college information session for Spanish speakers, which will be held in the library/media center of the school, 125 Kent Place Blvd., on Wed., Nov. 30 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. The event is designed for the Spanish speaking community and will be conducted in the Spanish language.
"Our primary goal is to provide information about post-secondary education opportunities, how to best prepare to take full advantage of these opportunities, and how to go about the admissions and financial aid process," said Arturo Lopez, teacher and Latino student laison at Summit High School. "Spanish-speaking representatives from several colleges and universities will be present, and parents and students will have the opportunity to ask – in their own native language - whatever questions they may have about this very important matter. Our objective is to provide much needed information to the students’ parents, involve the entire family in this important process, and encourage a greater number of Hispanic students to pursue higher education."
Interested students from the neighboring school districts of Milburn, Madison, Springfield, Chatham, New Providence, Berkley Heights, and Westfield have also been invited to attend the event.
