He’ll also give a lunch address, designed for parents, volunteers and high school students, entitled The Power of You: What Admissions Officers Look for in Applications.
Palouse Pathways wanted to provide resources so that students throughout the Palouse, LC Valley and beyond can find help and support for their college and career aspirations.
Palouse Pathways reached out to Arun, who was excited to share his knowledge with families around the region
In addition to parents, local professionals who work with students are encouraged to attend. Palouse Pathways volunteer positions will be open to workshop attendees. Our trained volunteers can answer questions and possibly serve as mentors for students needing more help to achieve their dreams.
The event is free of charge, though Palouse Pathways accepts donations to help defray its costs for lunch, refreshments and materials.
