The fair will be open to all students throughout Yuma County
YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - An ensemble of postsecondary institutions and military representatives will be hosting live informational sessions.
Yuma Union High School District will be hosting a "Wreck-It-Ralph: Breaking the Internet" themed, virtual version of its annual College, Career and Military Fair on Thursday, Oct. 15, 2020.
YUHSD encourages all Yuma County students to attend.
The festivities will begin at 5:30 PM, starting with a greeting from Kofa High School Principal Mike Sharp, plus, instructions for how to access the variety of live presentations.
The event's homepage will also display resources ranging from scholarship information to career opportunities to college admissions tutorials.
YUHSD Chief Communications Officer Eric Patten reassures the change to virtual format will not differ from the traditional annual fair students are used to. "While the style of the event will look and feel quite a bit different, counselors across the district have worked hard to provide an experience that resembles the traditional fair with a twist," Patten says.
The following groups are set to present:
- Air Force Academy/AFROTC
- Arizona State University
- Arizona Western College
- ASU and AWC CAMP
- Grand Canyon University
- Northern Arizona University
- Stanford University
- University of Arizona
- U.S. Marine Corps
- U.S. Army
