Schools statewide are taking part in College Go! Week this week, giving students from elementary through high school the opportunity to work toward their career goals.
Marion Community Schools Director of Communications Patricia Gibson says an early start can only help students.
Gibson says this week is dedicated to aiding students in realizing the importance of further education, and doing whatever they can to help them get there.
Thursday at Marion High School, seniors worked on post-secondary applications. Other upper-level students have spent the week on career exploration and learning what it will take for them to achieve their goals. Even elementary age students heard presentations throughout the week focused on the importance of higher education.
