Free college prep help for teens available at library
There are lots of details every college-bound student should ask during the application process, but where do you find the answers to those questions?
The James V. Brown Library, 19 E. Fourth St., can help. Volunteer Henriette Evans, a retired college career and academic specialist, will hold “Help from Henriette” college preparation assistance. No registration is required; just drop in from 5 – 7 p.m. on the first Monday of each month and from 2 – 4 p.m. on the second Sunday of each month.
The next programs are Oct. 9, Nov. 7 and Nov. 13.
Evans will facilitate by sharing informatio1n, answering questions, and guiding teens and parents in SAT prep, the college application process, FAFSA completion and more.
Evans has spent several decades in higher education, working with students at Pennsylvania College of Technology and Penn State University in academic support roles.
“I recently took an early retirement from the Pennsylvania State University where I coordinated recruitment for the Eberly College of Science, advised students for health career preparation, coordinated a boutique program combining Science and Business, and worked with international students seeking science degrees,” Evans said. “Prior to this, I worked for 19 years at the Penn College as an adjunct faculty in the sciences and in academic support. I am hoping to help high school students navigate through the college application process and find what is a good fit for their aspirations.”
