I am excited to start as a COOL College Advisor this year at ATEMS. COOL is an acronym for College Offers Opportunities for Life.

Although I am only on campus for half of the week, I still offer every opportunity the other COOL Counselors offer including,
– Helping students find the college that best suites their needs
– Assisting students complete admission applications
– Supporting students with their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
– Finding scholarship opportunities
– Offering over 20 college tours at no cost to the students to colleges in the area and across Texas At WCE.

I will be in the library 2 mornings a week for the seniors to come in and complete at least one application to a school of higher education and start the FAFSA process. FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid, for the 2019-2020 school year, the school district is requiring that every graduating senior completes their FAFSA before they graduate. I am here to assist students and parents in completing the FAFSA as well as scholarship applications and other required documents for the college application.
