Thirty ConVal Regional High students attended the N.H. Access to College Convention at Keene State College on Nov. 17.

Keynote speaker Senator Jay Kahn spoke to the students about the importance of building their leadership skills by joining and getting involved in high school.

Students listened to a panel of admissions representatives from New Hampshire two-year and four-year colleges, asked questions about college life to a student panel, learned about financial aid through a Jeopardy! game, toured the Keene State campus and finished their visit with lunch in the dining commons.

The Monadnock-Area College Access Convention is sponsored by the N.H. College and University Council and made possible by GEAR UP New Hampshire and Keene State College.
