Lauderdale County Schools' College Fair

Hundreds of high school seniors got a chance to learn about choices for the next step in their education.

Lauderdale County Schools held its annual College Fair Thursday at MSU Meridian.

Dozens of colleges and branches of the military were represented. Information was provided about financial aid options.

School officials say the fair gives seniors a leg up on deciding what to do after graduation.

"It just gives the students an opportunity to be able to visit as many colleges as they can and get an idea of who it is that they want to go visit to make the decision of where it is that they want to go when they get out of high school," said Cheryl Santillano of Southeast Lauderdale.

Seniors from all four Lauderdale County schools took part in the job fair.
