TURNERS FALLS — Franklin County Technical School, in conjunction with Greenfield Community College, will hold a college financial aid workshop for the parents and guardians of high school upperclassmen.
The event will be held on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in the school’s assembly hall. Franklin County Technical School is located at 82 Industrial Boulevard.
The workshop will be conducted by Linda Desjardins, director of financial aid services at Greenfield Community College. Various types of college financial aid will be discussed, including how to apply for college loans, scholarships and grants.
“Understanding the financial aid process is so important given the cost of post-secondary education these days,” said Kim Gangwisch-Marsh, FCTS guidance counselor. “The better informed people are, the better decisions they can make.”
