College Access Festival James Madison Memorial High School

About 100 people attended the College Access Festival at Memorial High School on Thursday, March 30. Volunteers Casey (Senior) and Anurag (Junior) helped direct attendees to the festival.

The festival, planned by Memorial senior Peter Yang and school counselor Dan Maloney, featured experts from UW-Madison, Madison College and Memorial, as well as former JMM students.

Families attended sessions on housing, financial aid, accessing multicultural resources and financial literacy.

Torvic Caradine of Madison College helped students who’ve been accepted to the school sign into their accounts. He also helped students apply to Madison College. The application fee was waived at this event.

Memorial Multicultural Services Coordinator JoAnne Brown led a session for families about accessing support on and off campus. “Knowing what your needs are is key to accessing resources,” Brown said.
Casey and Anurag helped distribute water to attendees.

The College Access Festival came about after Peter and Mr. Maloney participated in the Aspen Ideas Festival last year. Read more about their trip here. Thank you to Peter and Mr. Maloney for planning this event. Also, thank you to all those who volunteered at the event. #WeAreJMM
