Students and parents came out to earlier this month to get plugged in with Illinois colleges and universities at Senator Lightford’s “Connect with your Future” College Fair. Local high school juniors and seniors from across the area were in attendance to listen to presentations, receive personal consultations and locate essential information to help them realize their higher education dreams.
