The mission of The Hord Foundation is to encourage and reward excellence among minority students in the greater Danbury area by providing scholarships, offering support programs, and building a connected community. In keeping with the mission of the Foundation, the program development committee is hosting a series of workshops, geared towards college readiness.
The workshop series will begin with a panel discussion, which will feature topics highlighting the college application process, financial aid and helpful tools to assist in selecting the right school. Each session following the panel discussion will expand upon topics introduced by the panel or build upon topics critical for a high school student preparing for college. The goal of the series is to ensure that students (and their families) have the correct information to make informed decisions about their future.
