Taft High 7-12 in Lincoln City will host the Annual GEAR UP College Fair on Monday, Oct. 28, from 9 a.m. to 11 am. Juniors and Seniors from five Lincoln County high schools will be in attendance (Waldport High, Toledo Jr/Sr High, Taft High 7-12, Newport High, and Siletz Early College Academy). They are expecting to serve nearly 500 students. There will be more than 30 representatives from trade schools, public and private universities and the Armed Forces. This is a great opportunity for LCSD students to meet with representatives and plan for their future.
This event supports Taft 7-12 and Newport High’s College Application Week. Seniors will be given the time and support to apply for college. Newport’s event is Nov. 4-8. Contact counselor Reyna Mattson for more information. Taft 7-12 will be hosting College Application Week Nov. 12-15. Contact counselor Vicky Roller for more information.
Both schools are working with Western Oregon University, Portland State University, Pacific University and the University of Oregon to provide instant admission to students during College Application Week.
