These two free presentations deal with specific strategies for achieving success in high school and beyond. They are presented by Mary Gratch and Marjorie Lancaster, two local high school educators with 50 years of combined experience in the CHCCS system. Amy Brown Waheed, a local college financial planner, will attend both sessions and speak about how to plan and pay for college.

Parents and students are welcome to attend one or both sessions. No registration is required.
