Kickstart College Fair

The West Geauga Educational Foundation recently hosted a Kickstart College Fair on May 28 at West Geauga High School. Representatives from more than 25 colleges were on hand as well as test preparation and college/financial consultants.

West Geauga High School students and students from neighboring schools had the opportunity to meet with college representatives from local schools such as The University of Akron, Cleveland State University, Case Western University and John Carroll University and schools from out-of-state such as Edinboro University, Northwestern University, Yale University, Harvard University, Cornell University and many more.

Speakers on topics such as how to choose a major, how to choose a college and things to know about financial aid provided both students and parents with valuable information that will help guide their college decisions.

Juniata College’s newly inaugurated president James Troha, a West Geauga High School graduate, not only attended the college fair, but was also able to visit his alma mater during the day as West Geauga High school Principal Jay Bishop recognized Dr. Troha for his commitment to education. Located in central Pennsylvania, Juniata College is included in the book, “Colleges that Change Lives” by Loren Pope.

One of the event organizers, Troy Kucera stated, “We were so thrilled to have over 300 attendees. Our goal was to provide students with a unique opportunity to kick off their college search by providing them with a wide range of resources such as guest speakers, financial and college planners, a book fair featuring collegiate information and a wide-array of college choices – from public to private, including four ivy-league schools. In addition, we created a new student service group as an outreach of the educational foundation to help with event, so it was great to hear that the college representatives and our parent and student attendees had a good experience.”

West Geauga Educational Foundation President Caroline Concilla said that the committee of Troy Kucera, Teresa Kulp, Linda Todaro, Sally Contizano and Jill Snyder left no stone unturned in their planning and execution of the event. The foundation would like to extend a thank you to Jay Bishop and his staff for their support, especially in helping to get the word out about the fair, as well as to event sponsors: Bass Lake Taverne and The Makee/Joseph Financial Group of UBS.
