Connors State College recently awarded 45 scholarships at its annual Counselor Roundup Event.
The scholarships were given to participating counselors to award to a deserving student at their local school.
“Counselor Roundup is an event we host each year that allows us to meet face-to-face with counselors from local high schools,” said CSC Recruitment Director Logan Knapper. “It gives us a chance to communicate, build relationships and network with the counselors about Connors and what we have to offer to their students.”
This year’s event hosted 45 counselors who heard from keynote speaker Jose Dela Cruz, coordinator for Academic Affairs Projects for the Oklahoma State Regents of Higher Education. Dela Cruz discussed the many benefits of concurrent enrollment, a program allowing high school juniors and seniors to take college level courses and get a jump start on their college career.
