In the last week of November around 200 seniors at Independence High School registered for college with the help of AVID Seniors. The Application Week kicked off a series of college events culminating in the AVID at Independence College Fair, December 17, a project of the Junior AVID class. Colleges that have committed to the fair include Campbell University, University of Alabama and ECU. Students will also have access to lenders specializing in student loans and various representatives from vocational areas of surrounding community colleges. The AVID club stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination.
