Dear Churchill Juniors and Parents,

The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) is sponsoring its Annual National
College Fair at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds on April 24-25. This event affords high school juniors the
opportunity to gain valuable information from a wide variety of colleges and universities in one location. The
College Fair is supported by Montgomery County Public Schools; all high school juniors are given the
opportunity to attend the fair during the school day. The entrance to the College Fair is free; however, the cost
of bus transportation is $3.00. All students participating must ride the bus; there is no parking during the
day for private cars. If any student needs financial assistance, he/she should contact his/her counselor.
Parents and students may also visit the College Fair on the evening of Tuesday, April 24, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

If your student is interested in participating, please return the permission slip below along with the $3.00
transportation fee to the counseling secretaries no later than Friday, April 13. Please review the important
College Fair preparation information on the reverse side.
