College fair was impressive

(This letter was originally addressed to Diana Sirko, Aspen School District superintendent.)Dear Editor:I would like to congratulate and commend Kathy Klug and the College Fair Committee for organizing and hosting the recent Western Slope College Fair in October. The event was impressive and offered the opportunity for college-bound students and their parents to visit with college representatives in the convenience of our local high school. There were over 130 colleges represented! I have four children who are Aspen High School graduates, and all four of the universities that they have attended were represented – three different states and one out-of-country college. The effort and organization to put this event together is most appreciated and deserves recognition from the Aspen community. There were all the necessary ingredients – information, personal assistance, academic enthusiasm, brunch, and even free Ben and Jerry’s ice cream! Additional kudos to all the families that hosted evening receptions the night before for visiting college reps … what a lovely touch.Kathy WelgosAspen
