Opportunity for local high school sports participants awaits, but it’s not limited to the field or court.
The National Alliance of African American Athletes’ Detroit Chapter will host the College Coach Student Exchange senior student fair with representatives of 50 colleges and universities at Mumford High School Dec. 6. About 200 students from 16 schools are expected to attend the fair that will bring recruiters face to face with potential new additions to their college freshman rosters. Academic and athletic scholarships will potentially be awarded to eligible youth, who are required to bring unofficial transcripts, ACT/SAT test scores and present Hudl or YouTube film of their sports performances, organizers say. Proper dress is required for attendance.
Detroit Public Schools Community District students are encouraged to attend the event. For more information, visit www.alliancedetroit.org/scholarship-awards.
