More information on the event is below, but first I wanted to tell you a little more about the Hendricks College Network. What is the Hendricks College Network? To learn more about the Hendricks College Network, I spoke with its Executive Director Brandy Perrill. Brandy summarized the agency as the "guidance office for grown-ups." Whether people are looking to earn a degree, improve their skills, train their employees or connect to resources, the Hendricks College Network can help with a personal touch and at no cost to the student. You're never too young or too old to learn. Visit the Hendricks County College & Career Fair on Feb. 27 and find out what you can learn. For middle and high school students, they offer guidance counseling and host FAFSA Days at local high schools to help students find and apply for federal and state grant funds. (In case you're wondering, FAFSA stands for "free application for federal student aid.") Hendricks County College & Career Fair One of the many services provided by the HCN is the annual College and Career Fair. Brandy recommends that anyone from middle school to 150 years of age attend, as there is valuable information to be had. Beginning at 5 p.m., Feb. 27, the fair offers hour-long classes on topics such as scholarships, financial aid, essay-writing, paying for college, apprenticeships, military and trade school options and more. Many courses are repeated again at 6 p.m. Colleges and programs from all over the area, Indiana and the nation converge on Hendricks County on Feb. 27 for the Hendricks County College & Career Fair. Then from 6-8 p.m., nearly 100 colleges and programs will be in attendance, from local options like newcomer Midwest Technical Institute in Brownsburg, non-traditional programs like ITT Technical Institute or Western Governor's University, traditional schools like Indiana University and Purdue University and many other institutions from across Indiana, the Big 10, the Midwest and beyond. Branches of the U.S. military will also be on-hand to provide information about what they have to offer. All of this information is absolutely, 100 percent free to those who attend!
