College Planing Committee for Minority Students

This fair was not "put on" by Union Missionary Baptist Church, but was hosted by the church for over seven years. The Committee that works tirelessly to put this event on is comprised of NHC School Counselors and Community Workers who realize that many students of various minority groups, have a need for additional guidance, and resources to view college as attainable and affordable option to them. It is open to ANY student, family member, or concerned citizen to attend. This annual College Fair has been well received it the spirit that it is presented, and has not been tainted with remarks of discrimination or exclusion, and will never be. Have you ever looked into the eyes of a young Hispanic, Black, Disabled (just some examples) student who has very little hope or or sees him or herself as lacking the resources to attend college? Minority is just that.... an attribute that places you in a category, lower in numbers, than the majority of the society in which you live: Again, single parent home, Asian, physical disability, socio-econmomic status (look at our economy/incomes... that base just gotten wider), Irish, Egyptian, British.... The College fairs continue to be well attended by students, families, counselors, guidance counselors, principals, superintendents, who take material back to their students, opening doors for a brighter more viable future.
