TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — The Cherokee Nation College Resource Center is hosting two College & Career Night events this month, including one in Tahlequah and a second in Vinita.
On Tuesday, Nov. 14, representatives from at least a dozen colleges and universities as well as vocational schools will be on hand at Sequoyah Schools’ The Place Where They Play in Tahlequah beginning at 5:30 p.m. Visitors will receive information on Cherokee Nation’s college and vocational scholarships and on the Free Application for Student Aid, also known as FAFSA.
A similar event will be held at the Craig County Fairgrounds and Community Center in Vinita on Thursday, Nov. 30, at 5:30 p.m., with area college and university representatives as well as vocational school representatives on site.
“We know it is never too early for students and their families to begin thinking about life after high school, including the scholarship and career opportunities they might have,” said Ron Etheridge, deputy executive director of Cherokee Nation Education Services. “These are important decisions for students. We believe the College & Career Night events in Tahlequah and Vinita will make the process more informative and convenient by placing all of these resources together in one setting.”
Doors will open at 5 p.m. and both events are free and open to the public. Refreshments and door prizes will be available. The grand prize is a Dell laptop computer.
