Scholarship, college fair set for Saturday at Sumter High

Posted

On behalf of the Professional Assistance for College-Prep Excellence Academy, the statewide OnePalmetto Scholarship and College Fair will be held Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Sumter High School, 2580 McCrays Mill Road.

This free event is designed for all parents, high school, college and graduate students as a direct opportunity to meet face to face with college admissions counselors and scholarship organizations for on-the-spot advice about obtaining scholarships and what is sought in potential recipients.

About 70 scholarship organizations and colleges combined will be present at this event, and more than 1,000 parents and students have preregistered - as numbers continue to rise.

"Our goal is to provide access to parents and students through awareness. There are a vast number of available resources and opportunities that can assist in funding their post-secondary education," Melinda Mihlbauer, Founder of PACE Scholarship Academy and creator of the OnePalmetto Scholarship and College Fair, said in a news release. Obtaining a higher education does not have to be a financial burden. With the right tools and techniques, students can reach their educational goals without the fear of financial barriers.
