Do you know a teen who’s considering attending college, but isn’t sure how to start the process?
At 10 a.m. on Dec. 9, the Fort Worth Central Library, 500 W. Third St, will host a session of Launch Pad, which empowers high school students with information and materials necessary to apply for college by providing free individual and small-group college application counseling services.
