After 12 months serving as a GEAR UP advisor at North High School in Worcester, long-time MassEdCO education advisor Linda Graham has returned to Worcester Technical High School where she had worked with prospective college students for several years. Linda is now advising students in the Educational Talent Search program.
Upon her return, Linda was immediately immersed in helping to organize the WTHS Massachusetts College Application Celebration (MCAC) event. Held on December 5, the event brought representatives of 13 colleges and the United States Army and Navy to the school to answer seniors’ questions and receive their applications. At the end of the day, the seniors were recognized at an assembly in the auditorium. Parents were invited to celebrate as well.
Linda will be assisting students with the college application and registration processes; filing financial aid forms; administering fee waivers; offering early college planning and career exploration workshops; scheduling college visits; organizing college-related events; collaborating with the guidance department and the AVID teacher; and arranging field trips.
