Milton and Culloden elementary schools both participated in College
and Career Exploration week October 19-23. Activities included college
door and bulletin board decorations, guidance lessons, a career dress up
day at Culloden, a college scavenger hunt at Milton, and a special
visit from Marshall Alumni Office representatives.
The 5th grade students at both schools also participated in a "Picture Your Future"
activity where they created a silhouette of themselves in their future
career attire and completed a writing activity which required them to
research the educational path they would need to take to achieve their dreams
for the future. This fun-filled week enabled the students to gain an
early awareness of college and an opportunity to explore career options.
College Exploration and Application is coordinated by the College
Foundation of West Virginia (CFWV). Students and families can learn
more about colleges and careers and submit college applications by
visiting West Virginia’s free college-planning website, www.cfwv.com.
