"The trip was a success. We were able to lower the cost and scholarship some students! I am hopeful that this will be a long lasting impact on our students," Assistant Principal Shiree Yeggins.
The WGHS Parents' Club awarded Assistant Principal Shiree Yeggins a grant to fund the spring 2018 Webster Challenge College Tour.
Thirty WGHS students were able to attend. They toured four colleges including Southeast Missouri State University, Arkansas State University, The University of Memphis, and Rhodes College.
They received firsthand information from staff as well as current students regarding admissions, student living, tuition, and other helpful college tips.
The students viewed classrooms in session, dorm rooms, and ate lunch at two of the campuses. They also attended the MLK Museum site.
It is the mission of the Webster Groves High School Parents’ Club to support our teachers, students, and families. Your support facilitated the opportunity for thirty students to experience college firsthand. Thank you for your support!
