Visiting speakers: On Nov. 3, guidance counselor Kelli Fain arranged for 17 colleges to speak with high school junior and senior students along with their parents about their college or university. Upperclassmen were able to inquire about admission requirements, programs of study, campus life, semester fees, athletics, deadlines, financial aid, scholarships and any other question that came to their mind. The students found the fair to be extremely helpful and arranged several tours to the various schools.
Attending the fair included Angeleen O'Neill with Andrew College; Scott Argo with Augusta State; William Walker with Clayton State; Lauren Marie Smith with Columbus State; Kristen Shaw with Georgia Gwinnett College; Glen Gray with Georgia Military College; Jonathan Scott and David Jenkins with Georgia Southwestern; Tony Wahab with Georgia State University; Dusty Murray with Gordan; Matthew Montgomery with LaGrange College; Jonathan Cueva with North Georgia College; Wendy Stanley with Piedmont College; Laura Pate with Shorter; Jay Wyatt with Troy State University; Megan Courington with the University of Alabama; Jennifer Nall with Valdosta State; and Julianna Barron with Young Harris College.
The guidance office focuses on academic achievement, career preparation and personal and social development. Piedmont works with all students to set college and career goals prior to graduation. College night provided the students with a variety of options and resources to assist them in achieving these goals.
