May is right around the corner, and that means graduation. Seniors all around the country are looking for ways to pay for that college education. San Angelo is making a special effort to help out it's own community of graduating scholars.

The San Angelo Chamber of Commerce and the P-16+ Education Partnership will host College Goal, in an effort to assist students, especially first-generation college students, to begin the process of seeking financial aid.

  • Sunday, February 8th
  •  2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
  • Sunset Mall Community Room
  •  All San Angelo and area high school students and their parents are invited to attend.

College Goal Sunday will pull together volunteers and financial aid professionals to help families of college-bound students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the federally required form for students seeking financial aid, including grants, loans and work-study.

By participating in this two-hour free event, families of college-bound students will take an important step toward applying for the financial resources necessary to make college a reality.

All participants will be entered into a drawing for one of five $500 tuition scholarships given by A-B Distributing and the P-16+ Education Partnership.
