Yesterday morning, community leaders like Mayor Greg Fischer came to the KentuckianaWorks College Access Center to celebrate some important milestones. First off, it was the 40th year anniversary for the College Access Center, which has helped many thousands of low income and first-generation college seekers go to college and get their degree (including over 3,000 just last year). The event was also a ribbon cutting for its brand new location in the ArtSpace building at 323 W Broadway, next to the Brown Theatre.
A critical time for people wanting to attend college begins October 1, when the application for federal student financial aid, known as FAFSA, can be filed. You can learn more about the KCAC and its services at https://www.kentuckianaworks.org/kcac.
