San Marcos DISD students currently in grades 8-12 and their parents are invited to participate in a series of workshops to help families prepare for college. The first meeting was March 25, 2008, and addressed the “How’s’ and Why’s of Getting into College” as part of college preparation. The second part of the series will be Tuesday, April 29, 2008 on the subject of “Funding College.” Guest speakers will be Grace Delgadillo, San Marcos High School Career Counselor, and Byron Kerr, a Texas State University Financial Aid Counselor. All workshops are from 6:00-8:30 pm in the SMHS cafeteria. Pizza and childcare are provided.
The third part of the series will be May 20, 2008, and will cover “College Life.”
The term First Generation is used for students whose parents did not graduate from a four year college, and the workshops’ slogans are “To Desire is to Achieve: Querer es Poder.”
All workshops are free to the public, and more information is available by calling 512-245-3838. The series are sponsored by Texas State University, P-16 Council, Upward Bound, Talent Search, and San Marcos Consolidated Independent School District.
