“This event is a wonderful opportunity for our local students and their parents to be exposed to dozens of colleges and universities as they begin to think about their future after high school,” said Jolene Martin, WNCC admissions counselor. “WNCC is excited to host this college fair, and we look forward to meeting with everyone who attends.”
