Eastlake HS to Host Socorro ISD College Prep Forum Thursday

The Socorro Independent School District will host collegiate forums to share information with Team SISD high school students and their parents about college selection, college costs and the application process.

The forums will be from 6-8 p.m. at selected sites in the district. The first event will be the “Preparing for College” forum on Aug. 24 at the Eastlake High School Theater, 13000 Emerald. Pass.

All high school students are invited to hear from SISD staff and college representatives at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Texas at Austin, Texas Tech, TCU, UTEP, EPCC and more.

College representatives will explain the college application process with students and their parents. They will give insight of what students can expect when they enroll in college, and provide a description of university life.

Research shows that a person with a college education will earn at least $1 million more over a lifetime than an individual with only a high school education. The SISD collegiate forums will assist students and parents to make the best decisions for success in colleges and universities.

If you have any questions, contact your child’s school counselor or the District Department of Guidance and Counseling at (915) 937-0322.
