Wheatley to Host College Planning Night for Student Athletes
Selecting a college and making career plans are two of the most important decisions to be made by high school students and their parents. The choices are not easy to make and the cost of a college education continues to rise. Guidance counselors, teachers, coaches and other school officials can provide valuable assistance to the families experiencing the college-selection process and a team effort, in which the needs of the student are the first priority, is the best approach. To assist Wheatley student-athletes and their parents in this process, a special program has been planned. The program, titled, "Guiding the College-bound Student-Athlete," will be conducted on Tuesday, Oct. 17, in the Multi-Purpose Room at the Wheatley School at 7:30 p.m. While the program is intended to address the needs of sophomores, juniors and seniors, all Wheatley students and their parents are invited to attend this most informative program.
