Nov-Dec 2016   |
Helping Keep Montana Education Connected

As part of the MPSEOC membership, please enjoy, utilize, and contribute to our member's exclusive edition. 
This bi-monthly series is here to offer you an interactive tool for your professional development, as well as, help keep you connected with your MPSEOC members.


This fall season has been an exciting time in education!  With the September College Fairs, we had collective efforts from hundreds of volunteers and a coming-together of 80+ colleges and universities that served over 10,000 Montana students and exposed them to a multitude of opportunities available after high school.


Further, through your Counselor Update presentations, we hosted the largest Update yet with over 240 registrants.  Through this event and your team efforts, we continue to ensure students are getting up-to-date information about their best fit for college. 


All of your continued hard work allows us to preserve and grow the quality of these events.  Thank you for all the good work you do for students and Montana.  It is an honor to team with all of you in this mission.

Wishing you a very happy holiday this week!
~MPSEOC, Lauren, & Amy  |
