POTEAU–Over 500 high school seniors attended the annual Carl Albert State College Senior Day in Poteau on Thursday. In addition to other activities on campus, a drawing at the event awarded two students in attendance scholarships from the CASC Foundation.
A $500 scholarship went to Haylee Elliott from Wright City, and Ashley King’s name was drawn to receive a $1,000 scholarship. King, who is from Kinta, stated, “I’ve wanted to attend college at Carl Albert for a while. I have heard good things about it and feel like I could make tons of great memories here.”
The scholarships were presented by Kathy Quirk, Executive Director of the CASC Foundation.
Information regarding academics, enrollment, and student activities was provided along with entertainment by the CASC New Horizon Show Choir. The guests toured campus during the morning and were invited to lunch at the Costner-Balentine Student Center. Students were provided time to meet with faculty members to ask specific questions, and everyone in attendance received a CASC shirt. To complete the day’s activities, the guests were encouraged to attend homecoming that evening.
