College Day held at BCHS

Kiana Williams, college adviser with the Virginia College Advising Corps, far left, and Kelly Chambersight, GRASP financial adviser, both resource staff at Buckingham County High School, were just a few of the presenters providing a wealth of information to tenth- and eleventh-grade students during an Educational Credit Management Corporation (ECMC) College Day event in early April. Students were provided personalized informational folders while learning about post-secondary opportunities such as how to choose the right college, financial aid and scholarships. Participants also entered into a drawing for three $500 scholarships, to be announced at a later date. More than 140 students participated in the event. Students, pictured from left, Brianna Powell, Alexandria Ragland, A’larah McLay, Hannah Palmore and Stephan Fait gather important information to help them with their future graduation plans.
