College and Career Office
August 2022 Newsletter:
Welcome back to a new school year! The College Office is here to help you with all things “life after high school.” Please read your school emails and if you do not already have a private email address (that you check regularly) I encourage you to make one for college application purposes. Email will be the main method of communication for colleges. Your warrenschools email address will be eliminated upon graduation, so please move all important information over now including usernames and passwords that are linked to your warrenschools email account. Mrs. Chelsea Gribble has joined our office this year as our new Scholarship Coordinator. Mrs. Leah Simpson has remained in our office as the Minority Liaison/College Counselor. Chelsea Gribble is a graduate of Vol State Community College and Leah Simpson holds a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication & Communication Studies from the University of Montevallo (Alabama) and a Master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction from Tennessee Technological University. Please stop by our office anytime (room 102 ½)!!!

Steps to Enrollment & Free College Applications
The college going process can be overwhelming; however, there are many tools that can be utilized to better help ease this transition. One such tool is the website, CollegeforTN, and for specific TN Promise related help, TN Achieves's website. Furthermore, free College App(lication) Week is this month. Check the list out at the end of this newsletter to see if the school you’re interested in is waiving application fees.
