Jennifer Thibodeaux To Chair National College Fair

Jennifer Thibodeaux, CHS College Counselor, is once again co-chairing the Baton Rouge National College Fair, which is sponsored annually by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC).  Each year, more than 400,000 students attend National College Fairs seeking information about colleges, universities and other post secondary institutions.  These fairs span the US from coast to coast, and four years ago NACAC targeted Baton Rouge as a national site.  Mrs. Thibodeaux has been a co-chair of this event since its inception, and under her direction there has been a rise in the number of high school students attending the fair, as well as a rise in the number of college represented at the fair.  The next Baton Rouge College Fair will be held on September 23, 2010, at the Baton Rouge River Center.

Mrs. Thibodeaux is an active member in the Southern Association for College Admission Counseling (SACAC), as well as NACAC.   She has served on several committees for SACAC, as well as been a presenter, and attends the annual conferences each year for both.
