Falls City hosted a college fair that included 40 booths for college and military recruiters to meet with students regarding their future plans. HTRS, JCC, and Sacred Heart were invited and attended the event. Following the college fair, Falls City seniors participated in the Apply2College event. Students filled out college applications with the assistance of Haylee Erickson, Sarah Barker, and college representatives (Peru State, Northwest Missouri State, and UNO),

The district would like to thank Ms. Barker for organizing these opportunities and Mr. Windle, Mrs. Erickson, and Mrs. Harling for helping supervise students so they were able to attend.
