Tips and Tricks
Create a college knowledge board! You can use a portion of the materials supplied in your College Application & Exploration Week toolkit to create a board showing how and why college is possible in West Virginia. Herbert Hoover High School created the below board. You might even consider having a portion of the board dedicated to having students write how and why college will be possible for them. More resources are available at cfwv.com.
