Brazoswood Hosts Successful Fall College/Military Fair 2019
On September 4th of this year, colleges, universities, trade schools, and the four branches of the military from around the nation set up information tables in the Brazoswood Library Mall area of the campus. Hundreds of high school students on campus took the time to explore or ask questions about higher education opportunities. The college representatives in attendance were the regional admissions counselors the Brazoswood students would work with at each respective university campus.
Ms. Cindy Schwebel, Brazoswood Counselor and College/Military Fair organizer said of the event, “Having the fair on the students’ home campus makes it much more convenient for them to access the person they actually need to be in contact with for whatever avenue they are pursuing after high school, be it a community college, university, trade school, or the military. I want to give them all the options.”
Ms. Schwebel began working on planning/organizing the fair in May of last school year in order to recruit colleges/universities, trade schools, and the military. She also publicized the event with banners, flyers, social media blasts, and daily morning announcements in order to reach as many students and parents as possible to get the word out.
The College/Military Fair has become a tradition in the last couple of years, being held every Fall and Spring with the September 2019 fair being the largest yet.
Thanks to Kroger, Chick-fil-a and the Lake Jackson Army Recruiting office who donated food and drinks for the College/Military Fair representatives. And thanks to all who help make BISD students future ready!
