The Center, a multi-purpose facility in the heart of Springfield, is hosting a yearly Robertson County College night on Wednesday, Sept. 18, from 5 until 7 p.m.

This event is an opportunity for prospective college students of all ages to receive information about not only local colleges but academic requirements, financial opportunities, and military service that would help pay the ever increasing costs of college.

More than 60 colleges, universities and trade schools from at least four states will have representatives and information for potential students. Military recruiters from all of the branches of service will also have presentations for their individual branches of service for those students interested in going the armed forces route as a career.

The event is a joint-event sponsored by the Robertson County Board of Education, Robertson County Chamber of Commerce, and the Robertson County Education Association.

While this event is held with Robertson County schools in mind, officials hope and expect to see students from Sumner County, Montgomery County, Kentucky and many more locations for this one-night event.

Students and parents will also be provided with information about ACT testing, a very important step to college acceptance, as well as sign-ups for a job shadowing program for high school juniors. The job shadowing will allow high school junior to learn some of the day-to-day activities for several different jobs giving the student a chance to decide if that profession would be an area to explore in college.

If you or someone you know is interested in higher education or military service, set Wednesday evening aside for this annual event.
