Chemeketa hosting college and career fair Oct. 23

By Chemeketa Public Affairs

Salem-Keizer school students and their families are invited to attend the annual college and career fair at Chemeketa Community College on Wednesday, October 23.

To be held from 6 to 8 pm in Building 7 on the Salem campus, the college and career fair is a free event with free parking.

This event, which has taken place for more than 25 years, welcomed nearly 1,500 students and parents in 2012. Chemeketa and more than 80 other trade schools, apprenticeship programs, military and other industries will be on hand to showcase their offerings to students.

Workshops on applying for college, searching for scholarships and applying for financial aid will be offered. Salem-Keizer Public Schools and Chemeketa will offer door prizes for elementary, middle and high school students. Currently enrolled Salem-Keizer high school seniors will have a chance to win one of several scholarships toward college tuition.
