High school students should not miss this

By Robyn Pliscott


Many high school students don’t know where they want to go after finishing their senior year. Roberta Pliscott and Tina Ross hope to change that. On January 20th, Bell Shoals Baptist Church is allowing FISH High School Fellowship to hold a College and Career Fair on their premises. Students and their families will be able to interact with college, military, and career representatives. Two guest speakers, Mr. Dale Hall and Mr. Ric Rhom, will be giving mini-lectures on four relevant topics – College Finances, High School Students’ Common Mistakes, Unconventional Paths to College, and Why I Think We Should Support Christian Colleges.

According to an official post on the FISH homeschool forum, “This event is designed especially for high school students to explore their future possibilities (college, military, special training, employment, career or business), and to gather information about the college application process, scholarships and financial aid.”

The College and Career Fair will help students get information on the training and education needed for different careers, and information about applications, scholarships and financial aid. The event’s organizers hope to provide a wide variety of careers and businesses for students to explore.

In addition to the careers, there are some exciting things planned throughout the evening! There will be raffles every half hour, and students will be given one ticket every time they meet with a representative of a college, career, or military branch. Over twenty-five representatives will have demonstrations, displays, photos and more at their tables. A list of questions will be provided to help students with their career tours.

The College and Career Fair is open to the public. The location is 2012 Bell Shoals Rd, Brandon, Florida, 33511. Signs will direct visitors to the SEC, where the event will be held. Participant setup begins at 6 PM and doors open to the public at 7 PM. Volunteers before and during the event would be appreciated.

Please contact Roberta Pliscott ( or Tina Ross ( with questions or for more information.
