Education is the focus for Vol State Hispanic Family Night

Submitted on February 14, 2012 at 8:43 AM

Education is important, but going through the college application process can be complicated. Volunteer State Community College has an event that can help. Hispanic Family Night will have information about everything from English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes to college level courses and degree programs. Admissions, Financial Aid and Advising help will be available.

"Hispanic Family Night really is for the whole family," said Eric Melcher, Communications Coordinator at Vol State. "Many adults are interested in English classes or returning to school, and teenagers are just getting ready for college. We'll have counselors who can speak to people in Spanish and English to better answer any questions they might have."

Refreshments will be served. There will also be movies and fun to keep children entertained, so parents and high school students can have time to ask questions. Everyone is invited to attend. The Hispanic Family Night will run from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can stop by whenever it's convenient. It will be held on Thursday, February 23 at the Wood Campus Center on the Vol State campus at 1480 Nashville Pike in Gallatin. It is free and open to everyone. For more information call 615-230-3570 or in Spanish 615-230-4846.
