More than 300 students from Clover Park, Harrison Prep and Lakes High Schools attended the Historically Black Colleges and Universities College Fair Feb. 3 at Clover Park. Students attended in business attire and brought along their portfolios, admission essays, transcript, test scores and letters of recommendation.
Some students received admission offers “on-the-spot” and many received partial scholarships. One student received a “full ride” scholarship. Many 10th- and 11th-graders also took advantage of the fair to ask questions and investigate future opportunities.
