College fair features nearly 70 schools

| October 21, 2015

COSHOCTON – Students and parents had the opportunity to visit with admissions counselors from colleges, universities, technical schools, trade schools and military recruiters during the annual Coshocton C.A.R.E.S. College Fair Night on Oct. 20 at the Coshocton County Career Center.

“When the fair first started it just had numbers (of schools) in the teens and now we are up to 70,” said Brian Crilow, director and advisor with Coshocton C.A.R.E.S. “It’s grown in leaps and bounds. It’s great to know that our fair is respected around the area and the state. There are a lot of schools that come back year after year. Of course they (the admission reps) also get a free meal catered by the Career Center’s Chef Mike Cichon.”

The event, however, wouldn’t be possible without the help of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, which sponsors it and donations from businesses and individuals.

“Without their help I’m not sure we could continue this,” Crilow said.

Coshocton C.A.R.E.S. also is a United Way Partner Agency.
