The college fair at Alton High School on Sept. 8 drew a record 47 representatives of colleges and military branches from five states: Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma and Tennessee. All Alton ninth- through twelfth-grade students had a chance to visit with the representatives in the high school gym. Van Buren High School and Winona High School brought students to participate in the fair. The event was organized by Alton High School counselor Pam Gilliland. High School Principal Eric Allen said Gilliland did an outstanding job of bringing together so many representatives. Their displays stretched from wall to wall in the gym all afternoon.
