Robstown High School is going the extra mile to ensure their high school students are fully prepared to attend college. The FAFSA Fiesta was held on Monday Feb, 15 from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at Robstown High School.
On Monday evening, the Robstown High School College and Career Readiness department hosted representatives from area colleges and universities to assist High School Students with submitting their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students and parents were assisted by officers from the financial aid and/or the admissions and recruiting offices of Del Mar College, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, and Texas A&M University-Kingsville. According to a representative from the Texas A&M University-Kingsville financial aid office, they were helping students and their parents because they can both benefit from filling out FAFSA forms and parents are also encouraged to try to attend college as well.
Parents and students who attended partook in the ‘fiesta night’ theme, because Robstown ISD is excited to help students get one step closer to college. According to Robstown ISD Public Relations Coordinator Kelsey Cook, they were promoting the fiesta theme with decorations, food and fun.
For students and parents who were unable to attend, they can still find the information on how to apply by going to the FAFSA website at fafsa.ed.gov.
