College fair scheduled for May 1

May is finally upon us. The month of warmer weather, relaxed academic pressure (in the minds of students), proms and last but not least AP testing.

A new addition to the month of May would be the first ever annual Emmaus High School College Fair, sponsored by the counseling office.

The fair will be held at EHS 6 to 8 p.m. May 1. Students in all grade levels, as well as their parents, are encouraged to attend. The college search is important and can be an overwhelming process, so it is important to attend.
