Motlow College to host Area-Wide College and Career Fair Sept. 10 on Moore County campus

Sept. 2 2015

Motlow College will host its annual area-wide College and Career Fair on Thursday, Sept. 10, inside Nisbett Center on the Moore County campus. Motlow invites its student body, students from area high schools and those who are home-schooled, and the general public.

The event is set for 9 - 11:30 a.m. and will include representatives from more than 30 colleges and universities, technology centers, specialty schools and the Armed Forces; according to Brenda Cannon, director of student and campus relations at Motlow.

"The college and career fair is another partnership that provides a valuable service to area high school students, counselors and parents," said Cannon. "The fair is a central venue for universities, colleges, and technical and specialty colleges to showcase their institutions as well as to recruit students.

"This year, Motlow academic departments will participate as well," continued Cannon. "By doing so, department chairs and faculty have an opportunity to deliberately market their disciplines. We are expecting approximately 1,000 students from across the service area. The event is free and open to the public."

Annie Trout of the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation will make presentations on financial aid with an emphasis on Tennessee Promise. Presentations will be in Eoff Hall inside Powers Auditorium. Reservations are required for these presentations and can be made by calling Cannon at 931-393-1548 or emailing
