Why should students in the Applachian Region consider going to college?

Students should consider college because it can have not only a transformative effect on your career outcomes, but in all aspects of an individuals life. There is so much learning that happens at college, not just in the classroom, and I believe that it is all these experiences that make college so important. 

What is one piece of advice you might be able to offer a middle or high school student?

One piece of advice I would give students is to push. Push yourself and push your dreams. Don't just settle, imagine greater for yourself because that's what you deserve. And ask for help.
