The annual event aims to help parents navigate the education system and help create a college-going culture. Vanessa Atkins and Megan Capeheart represented CBC.
Feria Para Aprendar, also called a “Learning Fair,” promotes all aspects of education from early childhood through college and career readiness. The community partnership effort is hosted by Citizens for Educational Excellence and Coastal Bend Partners for College and Career Readiness: Prekindergarten-16 Regional Council.
More than 70 exhibitors from colleges, universities, non-profits, community groups and school districts and more than 100 educators and volunteers attended the event. About 2,000 parents and children attend the event each year.
