Caney Creek, New Caney, Porter, and Splendora high school juniors and seniors are invited to attend the 17th annual Project Connections on Tuesday, March 19 from 5:30-8 p.m. at the East Montgomery County Improvement District (EMCID) in New Caney.
This free event, sponsored by the local school districts, the Rotary Club of East Montgomery County and Lone Star College-Kingwood, allows high school juniors and seniors and their parents a chance to visit with various academic departments from LSC-Kingwood as well as learn about what it takes to start their college career.
“We are excited to once again offer this opportunity to our local students and their families,” said Erica Cushmore, outreach and recruitment program manager at LSC-Kingwood. “With information tables for many of the academic programs available at LSC-Kingwood, information about financial aid and career planning, free food, scholarships, and fantastic prizes, this is a really fun event for everyone that attends.”
The college’s financial aid representatives will be present to assist parents and students in the completion of applications for federal financial aid. Also, representatives from LSC-Kingwood’s admissions and advising departments will conduct break-out sessions to answer questions about the application process and provide tips on how to select classes, develop an academic plan, how to transfer to a university and overall how to be successful in college.
