NORWICH – Hundreds of Chenango County high school students turned out to Spring College Day, hosted in the field house of the Norwich Family YMCA this week, to explore options available to them at the end of their high school career and speak with representatives from more than 40 different institutions around the state.
The event, sponsored by the Chenango County School Counselor Association (CCSCA), was a draw for all eight school districts in the county as well as surrounding districts, including Morris, Edmeston and Gilbertsville-Mt. Upton. More than 400 students were anticipated to attend this year’s College Day and according to event organizers, turnout lived up to those expectations.
“This is something we do every year for (high school) juniors, so it’s a good first exposure to colleges,” explained Candice Poyer, Sherburne-Earlville guidance counselor and member of the Chenango County School Counselor Association.
