College is Possible Day at WLC - I am College Bound!
The Wilton-Lydneborough Cooperative graduating class of 2020 took part in the “I Am College Bound/I Applied” initiative, designed to increase the amount of New Hampshire high school seniors submitting college applications.
Twenty-one WLC seniors participated in this statewide initiative that encouraged students to apply to college on Wednesday, November 20th.
During the event, seniors had the opportunity to prepare and apply to all New Hampshire state colleges for free. High school counselor Mandy Kovaliv, along with admissions representatives from NHHEAF and various colleges/universities throughout the state were on hand to guide the students through the process. WLC students saved $1,750.00 in admission fees!
This campaign is open to all high school seniors at participating high schools, provides additional assistance and encouragement to students who may be the first in their family to attend college, low-income students, and others who may be unfamiliar with the college application process. Congratulations to our first student to apply, Natalie April!
All students who participated were entered into a drawing for a $500.00 scholarship. We are proud to announce and would like to congratulate Kaitlin LoVerme!
Wilton-Lydneborough Cooperative is one of 49 public high schools across New Hampshire participating in the program during the month of November, which has been designated as College Application Month. Since 2014, over 4,850 New Hampshire high school seniors have submitted over 11,500 college applications through I Am College Bound/I Applied program.
“This is our first year taking part in this program and is an exciting opportunity to assist our students during the school day to learn more about college(s), how the application process works and what each college/university requires for admission” Mrs. Kovaliv said.
The program is part of a nationwide initiative coordinated by ACT’s Center for Equity in Learning. In New Hampshire, the program is supported by the New Hampshire Department of Education, The NHHEAF Network Organizations, the New Hampshire Association of Student Financial Aid.
