UT Tyler College Readiness Coach, Chloe Burleson, will be at the high school most Thursdays from 10 AM to 3 PM in room 105 to help students further their education through college. Burleson is aiding students when it comes to college applications, scholarship applications, and financial aid.

“There are numerous reasons why furthering your education is important,” freshman and junior counselor David Ramsey said. “The biggest reason is quality of life.”

Burleson is a UT student, but she will help students who wish to attend any college or university. Juniors and seniors who also seek out help can have access to the lab for college-related projects. Students who apply to UT Tyler can get the $60 application fee waived when going through Burleson. 

Chloe is going to be a great help and support to our students,” sophomore and senior counselor Tamica Collard said.
