LEMONT FURNACE, Pa. — Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus co-sponsored the 4th annual Greene County Consortium of School Counselors & Penn State Fayette College and Scholarship Fair on Nov. 16 at the Carmichaels & Cumberland Township Volunteer Fire Company.
Penn State Fayette campus provides logistical support, as well as collateral materials and refreshments, for the event.
The fair connects over a thousand students, grades 8 to 12, from five Greene County schools, with information and resources on higher education, the application process and financial aid. Rachel Angry, admissions counselor at Penn State Fayette, has been instrumental in the initiative.

School counselors from West Greene Middle-Senior High School, Mapletown Jr./Sr. High School, Jefferson-Morgan High School, Carmichaels Area Senior High School, and Waynesburg Central High School, and Greene County Career and Technology Center (GCCTC) helped to execute the event.
