An evening with college admission directors

Cannon School will welcome Sally Richmond, vice president for admissions and financial aid at Washington  Lee University and Barbara Polk, deputy director of undergraduate admissions at UNC on Tuesday, February 27 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Cindric Performing Arts Center on campus, 5801 Poplar Tent Road, Concord.

Richmond and Polk will begin the program with an overview of the college admission process, followed by a Q&A session.

The event is free and open to parents of high school-aged students in the larger community. We ask that parents bring questions about preparing their child for higher education opportunities, the admission process, and the financial aid and scholarship process.

STEM summer camp

For the 11th consecutive year, a summer program will be offered to students entering grades sixth through ninth that reside in Rowan County and are interested in advanced study in science, technology, engineering and math. The program will take place during July at Salisbury High School.

To receive information about the summer program, parents and students are invited to attend a presentation and question-and-answer session at Salisbury High School on either Sunday, March 4, at 2 p.m. or Thursday, March 8 at 6:30 p.m. Applications for admission to the program will be available to parents in attendance at both informational sessions, and also available in the main office at Salisbury High School.

For additional information, contact Barbara Peach at Salisbury High School at 704-636-1221 or email her at peachbj@rss.k12.nc.us
