Session on college planned at Park

State Sen. Katie Sieben, State Rep. Karla Bigham, and guidance counselor Dan Powers are hosting an informal forum, "Saturday Conversations with Minnesota Colleges," inviting higher education institutions (University of Minnesota System, Minnesota State Colleges & Universities and the Minnesota Private College Council) to Park High School in Cottage Grove to talk about education options in Minnesota.

The purpose of this event is to give students and their parents an opportunity to hear about potential higher education institutions and program options in Minnesota. Each institution will make 20-minute presentations and representatives will be available for a question and answer session at the end. This is not a promotional talk -- it's an informational session that prospective students and their families are encouraged to attend.

Saturday Conversations with Minnesota Colleges will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday, March 7 in the Park High School Cafeteria, 8040 80th Street South, Cottage Grove.

If there are any questions, Powers can be contacted at (651) 768-3723 and Bigham can be contacted at (651) 296-4342 or via e-mail at
