Greater Clark helping students

Elected officials are joining with secondary and post-secondary institutions and business organizations to help students make the transition from high school to college and other post-secondary education or training.

Greater Clark is hosting a final Close the Deal event for high school seniors to generate excitement about applying to and enrolling in college and receiving financial aid. “Table talks” are the focus of the Close the Deal program. Seniors will be assigned a table and will participate in a total of three 20 minute discussions. The adult leading the discussion will rotate to a different table at the end of 20 minutes. So at the end of the event, students will hear from an admissions professional, a financial aid professional, and a student who has previously been through the college selection process. Following the “table talks,” there will be a college information fair of the colleges represented by Greater Louisville Inc.

The event will be at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 7 at Jeffersonville High School, 2315 Allison Lane in Jeffersonville.
