Antlers ninth grade GEAR UP students recently visited Murray State College in Tishomingo. Students began the day at Fletcher Auditorium, and then toured some of the main buildings on campus. Student Affairs and Student Support representatives provided students with a question and answer session about financial aid, housing, campus life, and programs offered. Two of the favorite stops on the tour were the gunsmithing technology and nursing programs.
The field trip was sponsored by Eastern Oklahoma State College GEAR UP. Eastern received a $17 million federal GEAR UP grant in 2017, and will serve more than 3,000 students in 39 area schools for seven years.
