The combination of 37 seniors and 29 juniors attended several meetings in preparation for the fair in formulating college questions, first impressions in professional dress, and communication skills in interviewing on the spot. These splendid students were awakened by the many opportunities that came as a result of their attendance. Most of the seniors returned to UHS with multiple acceptances and scholarships, which reflect their pursuit of academic excellence during their academic growth at UHS. Many of the host representatives commented on how the represented Union High School with their level of professionalism and excellence.

Patricia Bridges, was honored to have been approved and able to organize and chaperone our students, along with School Counselors Michael Mayes and Connor Wills, to this life-changing event.

The Wizards game was a huge success just for our town to get together and spent time with each other! Thank you to Justin Ciaccio and all of the PTA members involved. Also, thank you to those that sponsored the event.
