In this episode, Dr. Carjie Scott, College Talk Radio Show Host, will celebrate Thanksgiving! Dr. Scott will highlight The Education Equalizer Foundation, discuss the history of EEF, and share information with potential college students about how to plan for college.
- Happy Thanksgiving – We are thankful to celebrate one month on air by hosting ‘College Talk’ on Power Station 92.1 FM. Furthermore, we are grateful to celebrate the anniversary of The Education Equalizer Foundation. EEF is a college preparedness organization that helps middle to high schoolers get to and through college.
- Middle Schoolers – Scholars get dollars, and it pays to get good grades. Did you know that you can take the ACT/SAT as young as 13? This standard admissions exam determines the colleges you are accepted into and the scholarship opportunities you can receive. Now is the time to prepare for this exam if you are interested in scholarship money and multiple college acceptances.
- High School Freshmen and Sophomores – Your grades in high school matter. Take advantage of extra credit assignments, use all tutoring available, and focus on your time management. Begin researching colleges during your spring, summer, fall and winter breaks. Since the summer break is the longest, use the summer to shadow professionals in the field you’d like to work in.
- High School Juniors – Keep your grades up! Begin scheduling college visits and ranking your top ten colleges that you want to attend. Research scholarships and tuition packages, and connect with your guidance counselor for assistance.
- High School Seniors – During the summer of your rising senior year, begin drafting your college admissions essays, document your extracurricular activities on your resume, and scrub your social media accounts. Yes! Students have had their admissions decision rescinded because of something they posted on social media. Begin applying to colleges and complete the FAFSA before the deadlines because acceptances and scholarships are issued on a first-come, first-serve basis.
- The Education Equalizer Foundation Day of Giving – The Education Equalizer Foundation can help you with your college preparation. We offer ACT/SAT preparation test skills workshops, college preparation workshops, scholarship workshops, and more! On this Thanksgiving holiday, please consider giving to The Education Equalizer Foundation. Your tax-deductible donation will enable a scholar to pay their application fees, attend a college tour, and learn how to get the most from their college experience.
