Juniors, seniors, parents to meet with area college reps.
Juniors and seniors from Minden, Lakeside, Doyline and Glenbrook will have an easy opportunity to check out many local colleges and universities, as representatives from each will meet together at one central location. Tonight, recruiters from all over Louisiana, south Arkansas and east Texas will be at Minden High School for College Night. “This is the one night where all of the colleges will be at one place at one time for students and parents to talk to,” MHS Guidance Counselor Whitney Cate said. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Minden High cafeteria with a general welcome and introduction of representatives.
