TAHLEQUAH – The Cherokee Nation’s College Resource Center is hosting two College & Career Night events, one in Tahlequah in October and a second in Vinita in November.

On Oct. 23, representatives from at least a dozen colleges and universities, as well as vocational schools, will be at Sequoyah Schools’ The Place Where They Play in Tahlequah beginning at 5:30 p.m. Visitors will receive information on the tribe’s college and vocational scholarships and on the Free Application for Student Aid or FAFSA.

A similar event will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 8 in the Craig County Fairgrounds and Community Center in Vinita with college and university representatives, as well as vocational school representatives, on site.

“Life after high school will be different for each and every student, so we strive to provide vital information on scholarship and career opportunities they might have,” CN Education Services Executive Director Ron Etheridge said. “Our College & Career Night events in Tahlequah and Vinita will make the process more informative and convenient by placing all of these resources together in one setting.”

Doors will open at 5 p.m. and both events are free and open to the public. Refreshments and door prizes will be available. The grand prize is a Dell laptop computer.
