On Friday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Tammy Edmundson from Lubbock Independent School District talked with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about the district's upcoming College and Career Night.

LISD will be hosting their annual College and Career Night for middle school and high school students next week. Representatives from various colleges will be in attendance, as well as technical schools and military personnel, answering questions on how to prepare for education after high school. There will also be several seminars at the event about financial aid and how to pay for college.

Edmundson said that not every student has to go to college, and that there are plenty of jobs available right out of high school for students with the proper training. But, she added that whether students decide to go to college or straight into a career, it's important that students start planning for their future in their early high school years, preferably before their junior year.

LISD's College and Career Night will be held Monday, September 23rd, from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM at the United Spirit Arena. The event is open to students grades 6 to 12, and students from other districts besides LISD are welcome to attend as well. There is no charge to attend the event.
