Miami-Dade County Public Schools experienced another successful National College Fair last Sunday at the Doubletree Miami Mart Airport Hotel.
“This event is a wonderful and beneficial opportunity for our students to get information and learn about the academic choices that are available to them,” said School Board Member Perla Tabares Hantman, who has co-chaired the event since being elected to the School Board many years ago.
More than 10,000 students had the opportunity to meet with representatives from some 200 colleges and universities; 25 from around the world, including France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Spain and Canada.
