Kosciusko High School, along with schools all across Mississippi, hosted a College Countdown Event on Thursday for College Application Month.
The events are designed to provide information and support to high school students, particularly those who will be first-generation college students, as they complete applications to be admitted to college and seek financial aid to pay for tuition and other expenses.
“Completing a college degree begins with completing a college application,” said Dr. Alfred Rankins Jr., Commissioner of Higher Education. “I appreciate Governor Bryant highlighting the importance of obtaining a postsecondary degree and encouraging Mississippi’s high school students to take this important first step.”
College Countdown events are held in three stages.
The first is College Application Today, which Governor Phil Bryant declared as Thursday, Oct. 11. Today at Kosciusko High School, seniors were encouraged to wear shirts for their school of choice while filling out online applications.
Part two of the event comes on Tuesday, Oct. 23 for FASFA Day. Students and parents will be invited to the KHS libary to fill out the FASFA financial aid forms.
The final portion of College Countdown comes April 10, 2019 when students will be allowed to announced their college choice in a ceremony at Kosciusko High School.
Students from Kosciusko High School visited Breezy 101 this morning to talk more about College Application Month.
