High school students, parents and educators from all over the Tennessee Valley are invited to attend the Public Education Foundation's College Knowledge Lunch and Learn sessions.
These free monthly lunch time workshops will focus on college related topics such as essay writing, college financial planning and college admission. Other adults who work with or advise students on the road to post-secondary success are invited as well.
PEF VP of College & Career Success Stacy Lightfoot says, "One of the most important decisions our students will make is to continue on to college. PEF’s College and Career Readiness work focuses on encouraging students to attend college, and provides them and their families with support and access to help them accomplish this goal."
