Melissa High School welcomed over 85 post-secondary institutions on the morning of Thursday, Sept. 15 for the 11th Annual TACRAO College Fair.

The college fair is an invaluable event for Melissa High School students as they begin to narrow down their post-graduation educational and/or career options.

Melissa sophomores, juniors, seniors and parents — along with students from Blue Ridge, Collinsville, Farmersville, Trenton, and Whitewright — walked the high school gym on Thursday with the opportunity to speak one-on-one with representatives from universities, colleges, technical schools, and military branches.

The annual college fair is part of a statewide college recruitment program by the Texas Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (TACRAO).
