FRANKFORT, Ky. — The renovated College Info Road Show, which travels the state providing free help to Kentuckians interested in planning and paying for college, will debut at the 2004 Kentucky State Fair.
The College Info Road Show is a 30-foot-long Winnebago operated by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority and The Student Loan Peoplesm. Workers recently installed a satellite Internet hookup and 11 computer stations — one for KHEAA’s Mark Hoover and 10 for students. The setup will let Hoover guide students through useful Web sites, including the new GoHigherKY.org, the state’s one-stop Web portal for college and career planning.
While the satellite system won’t work at the State Fair because the Road Show will be inside the East Wing, Hoover is arranging for a ground feed that will let visitors see the operation in action.
As part of the debut, The Student Loan People and KHEAA will give away special GoHigherKY CD holders. And, as always, staff from the two agencies will be on hand to answer questions and provide free publications about college and financial aid.
The Road Show visits high schools and anywhere Kentuckians are interested in learning about the state’s higher education opportunities. Anyone interested in having the Road Show visit should call Hoover at (502) 696-7396.
KHEAA is the state agency that administers the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES), need-based grants, work-study, savings and Federal Family Education Loans for higher education. The Student Loan People are the state’s only public, nonprofit student loan provider. The Student Loan People offer the lowest cost student loans in Kentucky.
